Franziska Baur – Tatort Natur

THIS MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED as a precautionary measure during the Corona outbreak.

AAUPW Members who were on our walking tour at the zoo last year will remember our delightful tour guide, Franziska Baur.  Franziska is an environmental biologist specializing in wolves and lynxes and will be our guest speaker for the month of March.  Franziska works for the Gregor Louisoder Umweltstiftung and will speak about her work there including, among other things, a project called “Tatort Natur - Wilderei in Bayern stoppen” about poaching and illegal killing of these and other wild animals in Bavaria. 

The program meeting will be held on March 18th at our usual location.

Upcycling with Kat Heinrich

On Wednesday, February 19th we were pleased to welcome Katharina Heinrich to the AAUPW Program Meeting to talk to us about upcycling.  As an introduction Kat explained the difference between recycling and upcycling to us.  Then she discussed her personal passion for creating new and useful items from old and used objects - like the dress she was wearing that she had made from some old sheets.  She gave us several examples of projects that could be made with upcycling.
She also talked about larger initiatives that have resulted from the upcycling trend - a manmade island made from plastic bottles, alternatives to money with trading and banks that invest your money in environmentally friendly and truly transparent funds.
In conclusion Kat talked about the book she has written about upcycling, showed us some of the products she had brought along and gave us the opportunity to sign up for her English-language upcycling workshop which will be held on March 8th from 11-1.
