Bio: I was born in frenzy Berlin where I grew up and studied chemistry. For a couple of years now I have been living in Freiburg where I did a PhD in solar energy research. I enjoy living in the heart of the beautiful black forest - in tranquil, green Freiburg where sustainability is on its way into our lives - very much! But from time to time, I go to the lovely Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales where I study ´Sustainability and Adaptation`. And it was there where I got acquainted with the tremendous advantages and possibilities of industrial hemp - an unforseen encouter which has now developed into a true passion. I try to live a sustainable live - but just as so many others, I struggle everyday with taking the right decisions and finding my own way towards a sustainable life. Should I take the train or the plane, do I really need to buy another dress or are there alternatives (up-cycling, sharing,...) and which technology can really bring our planet back to being as green as it used to be? All of these issues... I would like to share my views and discuss them with you!
