Sustainability courses & worshops

I have been giving sustainability courses and workshops for different target groups in German and English on a regular basis since 2015.

Next to basic introductory courses and more theoretical courses I also enjoy giving more practical and hands-on courses on sustainable urban development, sustainable lifestyles and consumption, circular economy, the role of mindfulness and inner change in sustainability transformation, transforming organizations towards sustainable practices or connecting the global Sustainable Development Goals to individual ways of thinking and acting.

The courses help to grasp the current reality of unsustainable practices and risks, offer a more systemic understanding of the global and local processes and help to find the steps for achieving necessary changes.

Working with different formats and didactic methods, the goal is to help people connect the changes in their inner processes (cultural, individual, psychological, health & wellbeing-related) and outer, meso- and macroscale sustainability processes for maximum effect and positive transformation.
