In my opinion, every human being – on the one hand – is responsible for itself, but on the other hand, it should also help to make the world a little bit better, both socially and environmentally. Therefore, I try to integrate this into my life as much as possible by buy almost exclusively organic products and rely on sustainable procurement of office supplies, etc.
However, my guilty conscience has been plaguing me for years, since I fly a lot because about half of my jobs are international. I compensate for this with daily cycling (I do not have a car but am a member of car sharing), use of public transport and atmosfair certificates.
In addition, for some years now, I have been donating about 2.5% of my profits to 10 different organizations, such as Doctors Without Borders, WWF, Red Noses, Amnesty, ect. The goal, however, is 5 – 10%.
So also 10% of the net proceeds of my book “Blooming workshops and trainings with guaranteed success” are donated. At the beginning of 2016, even € 1,000 could be transferred to the World Resources Institute in Washington and to a cancer research center in Vienna, as the book presentation already raised € 700 in donations. Thanks to all who made that possible!
