Einmal um die Hallig

Noch spendet die spätsommerliche Sonne etwas Wärme, einige der letzten Tagesgäste der Saison fahren mit Leihfahrrädern über die schmalen Wege der Hallig. Doch schon bald steht das saftig grüne Gras, wo jetzt noch Schafe und Kühe weiden, unter Wasser. Dann heißt es “Landunter” auf der zweitgrößten Hallig im Nordfriesischen Wattenmeer.

Die einzigen Orte, die dann wie kleine Inseln aus der See herausragen werden, sind die zehn künstlich aufgeschüttete Hügel, die sogenannten Warften. Denn dass das Wasser kommt, ist in etwa so sicher wie die Fährzeiten. Auch nach ihnen richtet sich das Leben der rund Hundert Hooger…

New project running: Sustainyourfuture.com

Sustain Your FutureSustain Your Future is a project I have been working on during the last couple of weeks. The idea is to create little video interviews with start-ups, NGOs, organizations and companies which are all connected to the field of sustainability. The first video is not superb, I definitely still need to work on the audio quality and some other details, but it’s fun and I hope it will generate a few more followers soon.

Happy new Blog!

A new year deserves a new beginning. And so for 2013, I decided to start this very new blog. It will give interested readers an idea about what I was doing, what I am doing and what I am reflecting upon.

In the upcoming days and weeks I will feed this blog with whatever crosses my sight and that i find interesting and worthy enough to write about.

I hope everyone will have a great 2013! An inspirational TED-talk I just watched recently is this one of Amy Cuddy. It is all about body language and how it influences our behaviour unconsciously – and consciously, if we know about it.

It might make you walk differently in 2013…
