Not only big and successful corporations are eager to share of Barbara’s celebrity and personal allure to give their products extra appeal; Barbara gladly shares these star qualities herself to do some good in the world and get things moving. She is especially committed to the causes of the environment, healthful nutrition (in particular for children), and education.
As project ambassador of “Ghost Nets“ at the WWF, Barbara is helping in the fight against plastic pollution, particularly of fishing nets. An estimated 10 million tons of plastic land in our seas each year! Barbara is also active in other environmental protection projects.
Barbara also supports the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food in its initiative, “inform”, with the mission of supporting more healthy eating habits and promoting exercise. The emphasis here is on children, some of whom cannot even identify fruits and vegetables and who have problems with backward motion, since they lack basic coordination.
As a former mathematics student, Barbara was the 2008 ambassador for The Year of Mathematics. Working together with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, she shows children and young people that there’s nothing uncool about math - in fact it is a super exciting subject.
