Together with nature filmmaker Robin Jähne, I produced a multimedia feature on the Lake Tana biosphere reserve for the UNESCO Office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Sustainable development

For a better future

In my blog, I pick up topics that occupy me personally and professionally, both locally in East Westphalia-Lippe (Germany), as well as on my travels in Arabia, East Africa and Asia.
