My interest and love for live and nature is at the heart of my efforts to work for a sustainable world. To preserve and divide our resources in a fair and sustainable way is the best way to achieve this goal. I am an enthusiastic hobby cook too and being able to combine these two passions in Eaternity is absolutely thrilling to me.
The idea of saving CO2-emissions with climate-friendly and good food, I first presented at the ETH ecoworks-workshop at the end of 2008. Our team won the first price and a few months later I founded the association Eaternity. The three years following I was in charge of several smaller and larger projects carried out by the association, mainly on a voluntary basis, with several partners such as SV Catering, ETH Zürich, City of Zürich, Zunfthaus zur Saffran and others.
I hold a Masters degree in environmental sciences with a major in ecology. I have two years of experience in the area of carbon footprinting and ecological impact evaluation of food products which is an important asset to the association. Further, I have gained additional experience in campaigning and project-management through my work for WWF Switzerland and the University of Copenhagen. My core strength is interdisciplinary project work. I work consistently and remain the overview of complex and on multi-stakeholder issues.
It is my vision to create a more environmental-friendly and fairer world. With Eaternity we move towards this direction. It is my believe that the contribution of every single person is an important aspect to achieve this.
