Was machst Du eigentlich beruflich?

Was mache ich eigentlich beruflich? Diese Frage habe ich in den letzten Jahren so oft gehört, und statt sie – für mich alleine auch schon, denn darum geht es – zufriedenstellend beantworten zu können, war ich mir ob der richtigen Antwort nie so sicher. Alles und nichts, irgendwie.

alles Sondermüll

Eine sehr gute Dokumentation von Kathrin Latsch namens “Die grüne Revolution” über Braungart/McDonough, den Stoffkreislauf für technologische und biologische Nährstoffe und mit jeder Menge guter Praxisbeispiele – die vom NDR leider auf den unmöglichsten Sendeplatz überhaupt gesetzt wurde: in der Nacht vom Montag auf Dienstag, 15.-16.12, morgens um 3:40 Uhr. Michael Braungart wies uns letztens … Continue reading “alles Sondermüll”

NUTEC – cradle 2 cradle fair

I’ve just come home from attending “Nutec” today – an international congress and exhibition on “Nutec: Nutrients – Upcycling – Triple-Top-Line-Eco-effectiveness-Community” that took place right here in Frankfurt am Main, Germany during the last three days. Nutec is all about nutrients that will remain in a biological or technical loop, or as the tagline on … Continue reading “NUTEC – cradle 2 cradle fair”

49 minutes

…on why waste = food. “The goal is very simple and technical. And the goal is a very delightfully, safe, healthy and just world with clean air, soil, water and power, economically, equitably, ecologically and elegantly enjoyed.” Enjoy! :-) (disclaimer: a) just found this while searching for the Silent Spring link on my previous post, … Continue reading “49 minutes”

Just similar to what World Water Day means to me (not much as a *special occasion* from … Continue reading “World Environment Day @ work”

serikali ya Ujerumani + CO2 emissions

The German weekly magazine Der Spiegel today published an interesting list (compiled by Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V.) of cars driven on behalf of German Federal Ministers – indicating the consumption [in l / 100km] and the carbon dioxide emissions (original PDF, 0,2 MB). The list isn’t complete as some Ministries refused to provide information on this … Continue reading “serikali ya Ujerumani + CO2 emissions”

the deposit system

We had an interested reader over @ Afrigadget.com writing in the other day, who’s based in Juba, Sudan, and was inquiring about low cost, low tech, low maintenance recycling concepts for *plastic* bottles (PET). At best, I am afraid, we could only tell him about recycling companies already active in East Africa (especially Kenya) and … Continue reading “the deposit system”

why Web2.0 is important to me

[Disclaimer: I am currently reading David Weinberger’s latest book “Everything is Miscellaneous”, which seems to be just as exciting as “The Cluetrain Manifesto” from 1999 (which I back then forwarded to my boss @ work) or my prof‘s “Cradle to Cradle” bible – books that inspired me and have a long-lasting effect…] The organization I … Continue reading “why Web2.0 is important to me”
