We are active in these networks
Networks are great opportunities to build up new knowledge, exchange ideas and move things forward with bundled energy. Our networks connect us locally and worldwide with creative minds, initiators, discussion partners, problem solvers and game changers. These are spaces that create the future and the ability to act and help us to sharpen and further develop our self-image as a sustainability entrepreneur. We meet people there who, just like us, believe that this world can become much better than it is at the moment. We present them on this page in random order and thank everyone involved for the inspiring and motivating cooperation!
