Personal note:

I am a dedicated sustainability professional with experience in project management, consulting, research and entrepreneurship, passionate about creating sustainable cities with a high quality of life for all inhabitants. At WeMaCo I am leading the area of Urban Transformation. We offer consulting services to city changers and also provide coaching for personal transformation as part of our systemic transformation approach.

Feel free to contact me on the topics mentioned on my profile and related topics.


I graduated with a BSc. in Business Administration from the University of Mannheim with a focus on Nonprofit Management, followed by an MSc. in International Sustainability Management at ESCP Berlin/Paris.
Professionally, I worked in different positions in sustainability consulting and I have conducted research at TU Berlin on sustainable consumption and at the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) on postgrowth/degrowth, engagement, associations/unions and socio-ecological transformation. Now, I am focusing on sustainability transformations of cities and regions, for which I am also employing my competences in social entrepreneurship, project management and leadership.
I am active politically and in civil society, e.g. in environmental and nature protection and with the climate protection organisation "3 for Climate e.V.". I try to shape my life according to my sustainability principles and to encourage others to join.

Correspondingly, the topics I offer in the field of sustainability are diverse:
- building/rebuilding ecologically and socially just cities and neighbourhoods (focus)
- further developing regenerative ways of thinking and living
- achieving a socio-ecological transformation of our society
- to bring about a rethinking in our economy and politics
- protect our environment and create a pleasant climate
- inspire people to new behaviour and utopianism
- expand and share personal development and (intercultural) communication
