was an architect, an ecologist, a financial expert and a critic of the prevailing economic system. As a Professor she headed the department of “Technological Advancement and Resource Efficient Construction” at the University of Hannover’s architecture school. As early as 1982 she recognized that the broader application of ecological principles were inhibited by fundamental flaws in the monetary system, especially the consistent need for economic growth resulting from interest and compound interest. Through her continuous research and scrutiny she became an expert on the subject, working on practical solutions for essential Problems:
- How can we create a sustainable monetary system?
- What characterizes monetary systems which do not collapse repeatedly and which serve us rather than control us?
- Where can we find examples of well-working monetary systems in the past and present?
