Kerstin leads the platform and partnerships management at Plant-for-the-Planet, a global children and youth initiative that advocates for climate justice and promotes restoration as one key factor in the fight against the climate crisis. The Plant-for-the-Planet Platform provides restoration organizations worldwide with tools to fundraise and showcase as well as transparently monitor their work. What drives her is the belief that global cooperation, local empowerment, and a hands-on approach are the keys to tackle today’s challenges. Before joining the Plant-for-the-Planet Foundation, Kerstin worked on green economy and trade of environmentally sound technologies at the United Nations Environment Programme. She holds a Master’s Degree in International Economics and Economic Policy from Goethe University Frankfurt.
