The platform «Policy Kitchen» crowdsources innovative ideas on how to tackle the biodiversity crisis – and other pressing policy challenges. Selected proposals were recently discussed with experts and professionals from science, government and NPOs, among them Maria Santos, Professor of Earth System Science at the GIUZ.

The platform is public and enables a broad range of thinkers from Switzerland and abroad to collaboratively solve pressing policy challenges. The best ideas are developed into high-quality Policy Recipes.
