A hybrid event to inspire, learn and interact with one another on a whole new level while staying at home.

Can we use the capitalistic system to fight climate change? Social entrepreneur Ruth von Heusinger shows you how! By buying European CO2-emission rights, her start-up @fortomorrow.eu enables individuals to influence the carbon emissions of the European economy, making it as easy as online shopping. Sounds too simple to be true? In her Talk, Ruth will explain the functions of the EU emission trading system and how your single action can indeed have an impact.
Let’s talk about sex – or rather, contraceptives. For women*, there are several ways to prevent pregnancy. But the most popular contraception methods are hormonal or copper-based which can have a negative impact on one’s mental or physical health. Men* however only have two options: the irreversible vasectomy or the condom. It’s time for a revolution! With their petition @betterbirthcontrol, Jana Pfenning and Rita Maglio demand free and better contraceptives for everybody. In their talk, the two university students will explain why we still use out-dated contraception and how to tackle the status quo.
*We see the term “woman” and “man” as a social construct of gender and are aware that there is more natural variety in human’s sex than cis-woman and cis-man for whom gender equals sex. The * shall represent this diversity which is why we write women* and men*.

Manna’s story began in 2004, when our son got a rash all over his body a few days after he was born. In favour of our child, we banned all cosmetic products from the house that contain chemicals and thus the natural cosmetic products of Manna were evolved. Those are chemical-free, naturalness and contain health, a lot of work and knowledge. Manna’s products are not only gentle on your skin, you can also be sure that not a single animal has suffered because of them.
