Marine Cornelis

Art Director

I believe cross-sectoral collaboration is key to making a difference for the women and men living on this planet and to bring people and their daily lives in the forefront. This is why I founded Next Energy Consumer; a policy consultancy focused on the social aspects of the energy and climate transitions at European and international levels. On a daily basis, I provide support and policy analysis services and advise organisations to set up strategies to put the citizens back in the centre. I aim to empower the people by paying extra attention to the most vulnerable elements of our societies, in order to build a just transition.

Lison Daubigeon

My passion shines when working collaboratively and effectively with partners in the public and private sector to advance human rights and sustainable practices on a global scale. My expertise within NGO events and causes sets me apart. I have over four years of experience in managing an array of local and international projects, events and grant programs, including project feasibility/outcome analysis, partnership development, and community engagement within the NGO sector. I promote social inclusion in everything I do. I have a deep understanding of disability rights and how universal design can improve the lives of everyone, not just people with disabilities. I hold a Master of Science in Global Development from the University of Copenhagen, which has equipped me with the theoretical and hands-on knowledge of applying an interdisciplinary lens to solve global sustainability issues. Most recently, I worked with the Danish Institute for Human Rights within the Business and Human Rights department where I co-authored a publication of an analysis on the development process, content, and implementation of current National Action Plans on Business and Human Rights adopted between 2013-2018.

Dragana Vukasinovic

Art Director

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.
