Ann-Kathrin works at the intersection of sustainability, research and communications. Based in Berlin, she leads Rare’s Farming for Biodiversity initiative, coordinating a global network of partners. Farming for Biodiversity unearths solutions that work for agriculture and nature, spreads bright ideas through social marketing campaigns, and feeds lessons into global policy processes. Prior to that, Ann-Kathrin coordinated the Global Landscapes Forum from its inception in Warsaw 2013 until the 2016 edition in Marrakesh.
Over the past ten years, Ann-Kathrin has worked in Germany, Egypt and Indonesia for UN and other international organizations, research institutes and global NGOs – from which she took a deep appreciation for pop culture as connector of people and some useful but polishable language skills.
