Kari: There are various challenges we face as human beings, and that is why BIOVATEC seeks to contribute to the development of sustainable and eco-efficient solutions. We do this with a scientific-technological base to promote innovation through projects that tackle environmental problems. We also highlight the opportunities that biotechnology offers us and that new things can be created from very basic or complex problems. This is actually how we developed NoPlastic, one of the main projects at BIOVATEC, with the aim of combating plastic pollution and food waste. We also offer support and collaboration with different sectors to generate social, environmental, and economic benefits.
Charlotte: As an outdoor gear and apparel company focusing on bigger bodies, we’re committed to ensuring that people in the plus-size community can purchase gear and apparel that fits their bodies. We’re also advancing size inclusivity in outdoor activities and the outdoor industry at large. Research has shown that time spent exploring the outdoors on a regular basis can support and ensure continued physical and mental well-being. We’re all about our three C’s which start with being a customer-centered company focused on creation by and for bigger bodies and we produce products that are customer-validated. Finally, we know that comfortable clothing and gear nurtures confidence in people to live a healthy lifestyle with their chosen outdoor activity.
John Peter: Gather is an award-winning non-profit based in the United Kingdom and Madagascar. Our vision is for every person—regardless of their age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, economic status, or ability—to have access to a safe, working toilet. Our mission is to close the sanitation data gap. We partner with municipal sanitation organizations and help them collect, share, and analyze data to create city-wide sanitation maps. This makes them better equipped to work together and get toilets to people in their communities who need them most.
