Aside from her interest in the multiple shapes of influence, Cornelia's focus is on social transformation from the inside out, looking at individual aspirations as the point of departure. In 2017 she initiated the POZE (Purpose, Om, Zoom, Expression) dynamic in Haiti, offering individuals tools to identify and pursue their aspirations. The network is now expanding into the Americas, Africa and Europe. Her objective is to refine a methodology that influences people towards wanting to get involved in social change processes, rather than obliging them to act for the sake of others. In 2020 three of her books are published by Palgrave/Springer, ‘Development, humanitarian action and social welfare’ (May), ‘Humanitarian work, social change and human behavior’ (June) and ‘Connection in times of Covid’ (August)
