Verena wants to contribute in preserving our planet a good place to be for future generations. During the last 20 years Verena supported enterprises and NPOs by project management, organisational change management and facilitation. She collected many insights on what supports change for individuals as well as on an organisational level.

The wish to use this knowledge in order to promote a more sustainable lifestyle lead Verena to found Steady Steps ( – aiming to “Save the World- Step by Step”. So far, the initiative has developed a prototype for an app (sustainable habit builder) and the eco board game “Boiling Blue”. A very precious experience for Verena is the collaboration and exchange of ideas with activists and NGOs.

Verena is Austrian, born in beautiful Salzkammergut in 1977, she studied in Vienna and Nizza (France) and lives currently near Vienna with her two girls and her partner. She enjoys the beauty in nature walks, swimming, and yoga as well as music in all variations. She likes to try out new things and tries to live the change also in her private life.
