YOUR EMPOWERMENT IS OUR MISSON!
We do it the way our great mentor Maria Montessori taught us: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE AND BE A ROLE MODEL
"We live on an earth full of beauty, abundance and magic. It can and must be joyful to protect it. In other words: GRÜNER GEHT IMMER!"
"The only real failure in life is not to be true to oneself." Hermann Hesse
Rubén. Seis de la manana.
“Yes, hurt people hurt others. But fortunately, free people free others. Save people shelter others. Entlightened people illuminate others. And love always win." Vex King
“Poverty is because you don't have an education. Freedom is when you can choose. And justice is when everyone has both. I've been lucky in life. I can pass that on.”
OUR VALUES. YOURS AS WELL?
- Cooperation instead of competition
- Understanding instead of judging
- Life-long learning instead of reticence
- System thinking instead of isolation
- Teamwork instead of lone fighting
- Innovation instead of repetition of errors
- Scientific facts instead of misinformation
- Trust & respect instead of greed & envy
May I introduce:
Our 5th team member BABOO!
Baboo helps us to reduce language barriers and establish a simple but clear and correct English as a common language. It's not perfect yet! But it's getting a little better every day. Baboo stands for our AI tools such as chatGPT, castmagic, DeepL and more...
It was purely coincidental that Ulla ended up moderating the EUROPEAN BAMBOO EXPO in Dortmund in June 2023. All of us had taken on various tasks to ensure the success of the event:
Rubén curated the FIBRA-AWARD exhibition on the upper floor of the gallery. Andrés proactively reached out to speakers and universities, encouraging their participation. Iraklis tirelessly communicated with everyone involved. Silvia almost joined as a speaker but unexpected maternal duties kept her away...
We were deeply moved by the incredible and humble individuals who participated, both as speakers and in the audience!
There we all were, but especially Ulla, meeting Susanne Lucas from the WORLD BAMBOO ORGANIZATION. Somehow, it happened that these two leaders, both almost white-haired women, landscape designers, and horticulturists, felt a mutual connection. They sensed the significant need for learning, exchanging ideas, networking, collaborating, and fostering a sense of belonging among those present. While dancing on stage, they realized the missing elements.
That's how it happened: EMPOWERMENT BAMBOO was conceived, still in its early stages, but remarkably impressive.
A few weeks later, we continued discussing it and sought advice from Susanne and Michel Abadi.
And then, we partnered up:
- SILVIA STREIFEL, a talented German Podcaster Pro
- ANDRES BÄPPLER, a well-known and decorated bamboo pioneer
- RUBÉN from Seis de la Manana Production, a wonderful intuitive sound and technical professional
- ULLA SCHUCH and her GERMAN GARDEN ACADEMY, a digital learning space in the field of nature, education, design, and sustainability."
And the WBO offered their support!
Another few weeks later, we launched our pre-website, the first podcasts, and the first workshop. And today, on october 26th 2023, EMPOWERMENT BAMBOO has officially come into being! It's now a new business division of the online company DEUTSCHE GARTENAKADEMIE. We are here to provide empowerment, collaboration, a think tank, and marketplace in the fields of nature, sustainability, paradise, and wilderness…
EMPOWERMENT BAMBOO represents more than just our business. It embodies the future of our planet - focused on healing, community, and collaboration. It stands as a symbol of the new era.
We are motivated to bring this project to life because we have the ability to do so. However, we can only breathe life into it with your collaboration.
WE FEEL LIKE PIONEERS OF THE NEW ERA. ARE YOU ONE TOO?
