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.

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.

Nassera Ahmed

Art Director

I work as a Sustainability Manager at Chr. Hansen A/S. Chr. Hansen has been among the world leading companies on sustainability. I was able to map all of Chr. Hansen's products to the UN Global Goals and link them to their revenue. I am passionate about sustainable development, having realized there is no other way for growth. I also understand the important of making sure that the core businesses have to lead the way towards sustainable development which will influence policy development in the right way. I have been working with the life cycle assessment tool (LCA) for over 10 years and have a background in waste management technologies. I believe the knowledge of LCA and a corporate background, gives me the right overview to look at an issue from all possible scenarios and workout a solution that satisfies all stakeholders without compromising on sustainability. Infact my dream is that the new business model is nothing but sustainability driven business. Recently, I have also been involved in partnerships building and public affairs to influence the right policy decisions. Apart from all of this, I have used my presentation skills to spread the message on sustainability with various stakeholders like investors, policy makers, thinktanks, NGOs, customers and consumers etc. In the last 3 years, Chr. Hansen has been ranked the most sustainable company by Corporate Knights among their Global 100 list (no1 in 2019 and no.2 in 2020). Personally I was among the SDG pioneer nominees for Denmark by the UN Global Compact. I also realize there is a long way to go and I have a lot of work to do. But I am hopeful that with the right group of people and minds, we can achieve a lot!
