"The digital world is great, but we need an awareness of its addiction"

After years of Basketball coaching, I worked as a Tour Guide around the world and for my Bachelor I developed an effective Team task within EscapeGames. Seeing a change in our society, which has pros and cons, I mainly focused on showing interest and enhancing awareness. The Focus on Digital Detox came along with many travels and the creation of the Website Durasno.EcoTravel. The enthusiasm within the field of competencies was done early in my live and I hereby want to let others be part of it. To fulfill the complete understanding of this subject, this idea was developed within my Master “Digital Entrepreneurship” at Technical University of Weiden in Germany.
