Sustain-ability: ” In the broadest possible sense, sustainability refers to the ability of something to maintain or “sustain” itself over time. ”
Only by educating ourselves and the future generations on how to live in balance with nature we give ourselves the opportunity to a create more Just, Equitable, Diverse and Inclusive future.

LSW Advisor for Togo, Haiti and Mexico
“Already before my time as a student (first environmental engineering, now landscape architecture) sustainability was an important topic in my life. After two successful LSWs in Rapperswil and a lot of experience, I had the opportunity to deepen my commitment to sustainability on an international level. With the SWI I would like to bring the topic of sustainability further to the public and show people that sustainability can also be fun and does not only mean renunciation.”

“In my work as an engineer, I see that in addition to technical approaches, other solutions are needed to limit climate change. During the two LSW’s in Rapperswil I was able to gain a lot of new experiences and motivated different people to more sustainability. I want encourage people in other countries to rethink because climate change as a global problem cannot be solved alone.”
Sustainability has been a part of my personal and professional life for many years. Previously, I conducted research on microgrid systems with renewable energy resources, volunteered in disaster relief activities, and explored sustainability-oriented customer relationship management in the business sector. My experience has convinced me that climate change represents an unprecedented threat to modern society, and our generation must answer the global call of sustainability. But I noticed that there is a huge awareness-action gap in it. With SWI I would like to bridge the gap, for our planet and a brighter future for humanity
My motivation is to build resilience and improve livelihoods through climate adaptation and mainstream sustainability in our everyday life
