Cosmopolitan who drops anchor in Hamburg after six years in the U.S. and offers her treasure trove of experience in Sustainability, Education, Social Innovation, Communication and Social Media.
I consult corporations, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs who are working hard to make our world better, more just and sustainable.
I help clients develop goals, strategies, and sustainable solutions and turn them into specific formats such as panel discussions, CSR reports, expert roundtables, partnerships, learning resources, and social media campaigns.
Through customized communications strategies I can reach my client’s target audience. My experience leading international programs and teams helps me to dive quickly into new issues, support and inspire people, projects and ideas.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with and learn from very talented people in the U.S., Germany, South Africa and Uganda. Below you can find a selection of successful projects and products I helped implement:
Development of youth participation projects and innovative learning resources, such as ‘Decision in the Classroom’. The series was produced in partnership with a German public broadcasting station, and allows teachers to discover contentious issues with their students.
The community-based volunteer organization enables young people to learn about social and environmental issues in developing countries and support local grassroots organizations. Do Good Lab’s volunteers have raised over 60,000 Euro for people in Haiti, Kenya, Togo, Malawi und India.
Social Enterprises create new jobs and offer much needed products and services in the communities they operate in. I had the opportunity to work with a group of underprivileged women in South Africa and help them build a consignment store.
Through an animated video we answer this question and explain how corporations and NGOs together can protect natural resources and improve global working conditions.
With an international team of education experts and volunteers I developed strategies for teacher to use Wikipedia in school. Based on our work the Wiki Education Foundation was later established.
The ’Sustainable Living Plan’ summarizes Unilever’s road to sustainability. But is it an effective green strategy for Unilever’s over 400 brands? My analysis found a couple of challenges that prevent the company from becoming a sustainable brand.

Many people have only limited access to adequate learning opportunities. Conventional and digital formats allow all ages to discover exciting and important issues and learn at their own pace.
Social and environmental challenges need radical thinking: Social Entrepreneurship, Design-Thinking, Rapid Prototyping, Impact Investing and Crowdsourcing/Funding can spark innovation.
Corporations, NGOs and consumers want to operate and live sustainably. Concepts such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Stakeholder Engagement and Reporting help realize tangible social and environmental goals.
Do good and tweet, tweet! Through Newsletter, Twitter Chats or Google Hangouts, organizations can win new supporters and spread new ideas. Social media campaigns often appear informal and spontaneous, but often require a lot of planning behind the scenes.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
