Instead of being feel-good coaches, we understand that achieving success and creating a positive impact on the planet requires more than just abstract concepts of a “mindset”.
We provide a framework to understand with specific actions and tools.
To be positive is often hard because it requires you to trust yourself. We want to show you how to believe in your training and how to develop trust your own path.
To us, sustainability is a process, not an end. It requires ongoing effort and improvement. This is why we are here and invite you to do a journey with us.
You can be clever or powerful ... But the smartest and strongest you are with others.
– All those require effective and efficient communication –
Especially for sustainable actions we need to talk powerful, precise and compelling. There will be many skeptics but we show you how to bring your point across!
We know exactly what idea we have in mind, but others may not. To help them understand your plan, passion, or motivation, you need to be able to guide them through your thought process. This is especially important if you want to share a sustainable protocol. Here is an example from our content:
To enhance your ability to explain things, you can take two immediate steps:
1) Structure your presentation. For instance, start with the main point you want to convey. Then, explain why you want to communicate that particular point. Finally, provide the necessary information about the topic.
2) Try to view things from your audience’s perspective. Ask yourself whether they have all the facts and information you believe they do. If you think they might have some knowledge gaps, make sure to clarify what they need to know. Additionally, take their emotions into account. They may be nervous, distracted, or interested in an aspect that you have overlooked. Therefore, ask yourself, “What are they seeking?” since they often want more than just information.
Do not even consider to fightalone – there are many to help you.
And we show you how to get connected.

Here, in America, you can find other leading figures in green laboratory work, whether it be my green lab, which promotes the green movement in laboratories and companies, or institutions such as the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories. Additionally, there is an amazing network available at Green Your Lab and a plethora of information on the Labconscious website.
Interestingly, in Europe, there is an initiative aimed at transforming approximately 86 institutes into sustainability hubs, namely the Max Planck Sustainability Network. Additionally, there is the Sustainable European Laboratories Network, and you can also get in touch with individuals such as Kerstin Hermuth-Kleinschmidt who are interested in expanding sustainable actions in research.
This movement unites the entire world, it is not limited to highly industrialized regions. Through the International Union for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Trainee Initiative, we have been able to bring the idea of sustainable practices to Africa.
