Jonas, Natalie, and Max at the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) this week.[/caption]
“My name is Max Krombholz. Currently, I’m doing my bachelor in forestry at the TU Dresden. For this period I’m the UNEP commissioner, so I’m even more excited to be a part of the UNEA-3 in Nairobi this year. And happy to have arranged a time slot for an IFSA presentation at the civil society tent.”
Natalie Gray“Hi, I’m Natalie. I grew up in the Pacific Northwestern United States and have been based in Nairobi for a few months. Since graduating with an interdisciplinary environmental science degree from the University of Washington, I’ve dedicated myself to solving socio-environmental challenges in the government, non-profit, and business sector(s): including as policy assistant at the City of Seattle, and as an efficient biomass stove technician for Kenyan families.”
Jonas Geschke“My name is Jonas, next to Natalie I am the second Alumni of the IFSA UNEA-3 delegation.
I undertook my studies in Freiburg, Germany, where the IFSA Secretariat is located. I did my Bachelor in International Forestry and my Master in Environmental Sciences, with a focus on wildlife ecology. During my studies, I was active in the LC Freiburg as well as IFSA Executive Secretary and Head of Fundraising. Now, I work at the Museum for Natural History Berlin, where I coordinate a project in the biodiversity science-policy-interface, mainly CBD, IPBES, and SDGs. For German speakers: www.biodiversity.de. Besides this, I am still trying to find opportunities for funding for IFSA.
Regarding UNEA-3, feel free to follow my Twitter-Posts at @ifsadotnet and @J_Geschke.”
