Tanja Franotović – Can technology help us heal our broken bond with nature?
Tanja has been working for years as environmental communicator and writer at the European Commission, raising awareness about the nature and climate crises, and striving to bring EU’s environmental policies closer to citizens and stakeholders. While the climate crisis is on top of political agendas around the world, the awareness about the loss of nature has not yet reached the critical level that would enable society to take action to preserve the only home we have. With a background in literature, teaching, film and media studies, Tanja has been exploring innovative ways of bringing the biodiversity conversation into the mainstream. Though it may seem counterintuitive, she found that new technologies can actually help us change our relationship with nature.
