Why subscribe?

I send out a weekly in(tra)dependent, journal-like newsletter exploring ecophilia - a lived philosophy for the Ecocene. It is rooted in the intersection of ecology, spirituality, and science. I share the best things I learn, science & experienced based.

About me

I’m an ecological storyteller and transformations researcher. My last books is Be More. Need Less. How relationships matter for sustainability (2021). I live in Berlin, Germany, and steward a piece of land in Brandenburg to become a food forest. In the past years I have been working mostly in academia and writing my PhD. The most beautiful and interesting question to me is the simple question of how to live while facing climate change, species extinction and inequality. I love merging scientific knowledge with lived experience. I am my own guinea pig and test out ideas in my own life. This lead to various lifestyle experiments, like fasting for 60 days, wearing the same dress every day, or trying to talk to plants.

You can read more about my work and research on my website.


You’ll see an option here to become a paid subscriber at $7 a month or $70 a year. The paid subscription comes with zero additional benefits. It is just for those who want to give extra support to my work and my SUV.
