Dr Eckart von Hirschhausen

Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen (born 1967) studied medicine and science journalism in Berlin, London and Heidelberg. His speciality: conveying medical content in a humorous way. He gives lasting impulses that stick: on television, as a non-fiction author, at congresses or as a keynote speaker.

To this end, he founded the Stiftung Gesunde Erde – Gesunde Menschen in 2020 and published the book "Mensch, Erde! Wir könnten es so schön haben". For ARD, he presents „Was kann der Mensch?“, „Wissen vor 8 – Erde“ and numerous documentaries. Eckart von Hirschhausen is an honorary faculty member of the Charité, a member of the Sustainability Advisory Council of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Club of Rome and an honorary professor in Marburg. He lives in Berlin, is married, Protestant and does not give up hope for positive change.
