Sebastian Gärtner, Vice President of Programs at Greenstand, was the esteemed guest speaker at the Graduate Seminar of the EMoS programme on 27 October 2021. He talked about “Impact Ground Truthed Data as the Beginning of the Ecological Value Chain”.
In solving the challenge of scaling global ecological regeneration technology will play a key role. To provide tools for impact monitoring is Greenstands main goal. Mr Gärtner’s presentation aimed to show how the disconnect of the consumer world with the global rural ecological regenerators can be bridged.
