What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
I’m working nearly 30 years as an freelance journalist in the outdoor scene, writing about and also testing many different products. And I’m doing many kinds of outdoor sports in an intense way in my life. Also with my kids, who are grown up meanwhile. Therefore I think, I have a good feeling about products, which works and which don’t in practice. Editing the „Grünen Seiten“ in our magazine, I always have the ecological side of new products in mind…
