Paul Streifeneder

Paul Streifeneder works as a project manager for the Pleistocene & Permafrost Foundation for almost 1.5 years now. His main responsibilities are marketing strategy, fundraising strategy and managing the certification process. Besides his work at the foundation, he is also studying Business Administration at the University for Applied Science in Munich. He got interested in this field of work through an elective class at university, where the conversations revolved around different problems concerning planetary boundaries, growth in capitalism, and the connection to the climate crisis. He realized that there is a huge potential for a change and sees it as a challenge to tackle in the future.
