When we talk to other people about YLP, we are often asked for the motivation to go through this project.... without payment. At the beginning we were a little surprised, because the answer is as simple as it is clear: because we all need something like that to understand how the world works, how topics are linked and how we can make the world a better place for all of us!

I am still thinking about why this for us self-evident and selfless action for the benefit of all, suspiciously questioned. For a better overview, here is a small insight into the people behind the initiative.



To give a deeper meaning to my working life, I gave up my old sales job and started studying environmental sciences. I learned a lot about the influence of humans on nature and the environment from demmir was already aware of many things, but I still lacked the connections. My scientific work showed me that above all there is a lack of proper enlightenment. After my studies I was suddenly confronted with the question of whether I would continue along the scientific path, or if I should use my abilities to create Your Little Planet. Beside small jobs and honorary offices with Foodsharing registered association and beekeepers for beekeepers registered association I build up now with the majority of my time Your Little Planet.

Contribution: Founder of Your Little Planet, research, edit information, editorship, website, design, create graphics, video production, social media, marketing, blog, development of the YLP board game

Motivation: If someone writes on YouTube that the video on climate change finally helped him to understand the topic in such a way that he could give a lecture on it with the result "Very good".... what more do I want?

Dreams: Sometime some money for two hectares of land to build a simple straw bale house with clay plaster on it and grow some vegetables myself from where I can build up YLP. It would be nice if there would be enough space in the neighbourhood to let dear people get there as well and establish a community.

 

I found my vocation in nature conservation and after graduating from high school I started studying landscape use and nature conservation at the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (HNEE). After successfully completing my bachelor's degree, I successfully completed the post-graduate Master's programme in Biodiversity, Evolution and Ecology at the Free University of Berlin. In addition to my practical work in nature conservation and voluntary work, I am also involved in Your Little Planet.

Contribution: research, information processing, editing, blog

Motivation: Education on social, environmental and social issues is essential for children and young people to promote their individual education.
