Thomas Heuser (ZEGG, Germany) I studied business administration and worked for one of the largest German construction companies almost 20 years.
I am living in ZEGG community since the beginning of 2010. For almost two years now I have been one of the two managing directors of ZEGG GmbH. A challenging task in many different ways. My contribution is bringing together the working and decision-making of a large community and the demands of professional business.
Why did I move to ZEGG? I felt at home there from the beginning and love to live and work with friends. ZEGG offers seminars, workshops and camps to give people the experience of a cooperative and sustainable way of living. We also share our knowledge about living together as a community. This makes linving and working in ZEGG my personal contribution for a better world.
What do I love most in ZEGG? My goddaughter Jessica. She is the child of two friends of mine and "joined" the community two weeks after me. I got to know her on day 4 of her life and have since spent time with her as often as possible.
Why GEN-Council? I have been impressed since day one by the variety of communities that form GEN. Its diversity on a common ground makes it a powerful organization. I was asked to become part of the GEN-council during the 2012 conference in Krishna Valley. When I was asked to join the Council I felt that I am needed there just now. I knew that I have so much to do for my community at home, but I followed my heart. I am intrigued by the inspired and inspiring people that form GEN community.
My tasks in the GEN Council? I will help with office structures, work flows, the financial overview and the annual budget. I am looking forward to have a share in building the ecovillage movement.
