Clean oceans. We recycle ocean waste into amazing creations. Constantly talking to folks about stopping using plastics, beach cleanups, not buying plastics meant for single use.
I have 20 years of education and research experience within crop/food production, food safety and food security (see my LinkedIn for more info, below). I was always working to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied agricultural sciences to optimize Primary Food Production – which is how we feed the planet. I self-financed my 1st PhD research where I developed a molecular method for precise, fast and affordable way to identify insect-pests and tailor crop protection strategies by introducing biological control measures. In this way, with early warning diagnostics (proactive) it possible to exclude chemical pesticides in 100%. Furthermore, by introducing biological control strategies - we are growing food and we re-build biodiversity at the same time. This is exactly how the future farming should look like – farming should give and not take. Today, AgroDNA as a service, is part of my startup Fauna Smart Technologies (FST) (www.faunasmarttechnologies). My PhD research at the University of Copenhagen was on climate change effects on insect population dynamics and behavior in crops. I took innovative approach to this as well by introducing new links between sciences and technology thus creating applied agro-eco-physiology – to predict pest attacks already during winter! By improving predictions we make farm management easier, by saving time, money and creating conditions for introducing more biological control strategies (green solutions). With a huuge desire that all that beautiful science steps out into the real world and saves it from itself – I founded Fauna. I believe that the makers of the brave new world are Entrepreneurial Scientists. It is the capacity of a research mindset to Solve Complex Problems and the world needs this more than ever, NOW. At Fauna Smart Technologies we pose the crucial question: HOW do we want to evolve as a species? Healthy and Infinitely Sustainable? How to do it? At FST we provide science based pathway for creating not only livable, but a thriving Planet. We start with agro-ecosystems (human managed systems) and then continue with natural ecosystems. We have been selected for the SDG tech award (2020, DK) for the Infinite Sustainability science and tech system approach for Ecosystem Restoration. This is a result of many years of education and research converged into a beautiful science based pathway to restore the health of our Planet. The system provides the biggest total impact: with depth and scale - starting from the Biosphere and covering all 17 SDGs.
As a Environmentalist my strength is the field work for the sustainability of Environment & even i can perform my duty in the most tough climatic condition for the collection of baseline data and monitoring.
My core expertise areas are change management, adult education for sustainable development, networking and transdisciplinary and applied research. I am interested in applied transdisciplinary projects, which enhances education for sustainable development, sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, Baltic Sea protection and Agenda 2030. I love organizing and facilitating workshops, preferably cross-disciplinary and presenting my work. I finished my PhD in 2014 on enabling change in universities: enhancing education for sustainable development with tools for quality assurance, an action research, based on change management; which nine higher education institutions from Denmark, Finland and Sweden participated in. I have worked with these topics my entire working career, over 20 years.

As an water quality/treatment engineer the the aim is to deliver safe, reliable supplies of water to households, industry and agriculture, and in safeguarding the quality of water.
Working on a range of complex issues over 8 years, that have concerned people and the environment, from biodiversity and climate change, mining, forestry, industrial pollution, education, sustainable agriculture, rural development, sustainable fashion and sustainable tourism, I have had several opportunities to connect myself to ground issues; and to the diverse stakeholders involved. These have navigated my interest towards psychology, human behavior and the reasons behind the choices people/organisations/businesses/governments make. I am particularly excited about using design thinking and behaviour science to catalyze socio-environmental change.
My inter-disciplinary academic and professional foundation in sustainability has fostered my systems and divergent thinking mindsets. (I completed by BSc in Life Sciences with a specialisation in Environmental Biology; my MSc in Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management; and have completed online courses on the Circular Economy, and on Design Thinking). These, along with my keenness to go deep, and the lens of empathy that I practice and apply to issues I have worked on, have enabled me to over short periods of time make deep dives into very diverse sectoral challenges; effectively gather insights and diagnose root cause issues; and influence programme as well as policy design.
I also have strong experience in programme management, proposal design, partner (grantee) relations, government relations, and multi-stakeholder engagement. I have independently managed a multi-stakeholder initiative to strengthen the organic cotton value chain. I also have considerable experience in policy research and advocacy.
Most recently - I have spent the last 2.5 years contributing in the organic cotton sector; and have recently taken on the role of driving the sustainable tourism agenda of a leading travel company.
I have lived in very diverse countries, and travelled extensively around the world. This exposure has helped me develop a worldview that recognises and empathises with complex global challenges that concern people and the environment across borders; while also learning about best practices from around the world. This has greatly helped cross-fertilise ideas across different contexts in my work on sustainability.

Sofie Mora Fregerslev
3 years of work and research with sustainable production has resulted in specialized knowledge on sustainable chocolate production, value chains and development projects in the Latin American jungle. The conclusion was evident for me - sustainability is worth it, and the same results should be applicable in other inustries. These days, I'm working with re-forestation and biodiversity on my own initiative, 'Tree for Life'. Hence, I will bring my experience and knowledge on sustainable production and biodiversity to the table.

Founder and CEO of Innorbis with more than 25 years expertis in the field, Angelica has developed and created Innorbis, a powerful, objective, scalable and trustworthy digital analytical system for sustainable finance. Today’s economic and financial system are part of the problem , not measuring objectively the externalities and its price and values that matters. These are climate aspects, technology progression and transformation, and underlying governance aspects that are normally taken as discretionary in the investment world. Today we calculate with high automation all these aspects in a quants equation where qualitative aspects are measured alongside quantitative factors in a forward looking perspective for business assessment, risk and impact investing. We work with all the 17 SDGs and its targets , closing the gap between the markets and the new narrative in a sustainable development that we are proud of to be part of.
