Growing up in the beautiful woods of a national park in Germany Marcus developed a deep appreciation and a sense of care for the earth's beauty and her ecosystems.
As a young adult he came in touch with the concept of large scale landscape restoration and landscape healing. Studying with Sepp Holzer and other teachers and practitioners in various places and climates Marcus began working in regenerative design. Since 2011 he has been living in the Community and Peace Research Center Tamera, South Portugal. Marcus is the coordinator of the Ecology Team and works in research and implementation to create regenerative human settlements.
Blueprint is an alliance of organisations and individuals collaborating on integrated design solutions for regenerative human settlements - inspired by the ground-breaking work of Paulo Mellett.
