Christoph Röttgers, Student Assistant

Christoph Röttgers

Christoph Röttgers supports the Borderstep team as a student assistant in the fields of sustainable entrepreneurship, communication and public relations. He is part of the editorial staff of the StartGreen portal for the green start-up scene.

Sustainability has been a big topic for him for many years. In his hometown of Wilhelmshaven he got his hands dirty as a member of the Youth Association for the Protection of Nature (NAJU): planting trees, collecting garbage or building amphibian fences and nesting boxes. Later he expanded his wealth of experience in board offices at state and federal level. Christoph Röttgers is now an honorary deputy chairman of the German Federal Youth Ring and is committed to the interests of children and young people and to a sustainable future.

At Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, he is currently studying geography as a Bachelor’s degree student. In his studies, he is primarily interested in climageographic topics.

He likes to spend his free time in the countryside, which remains in addition to his studies, voluntary work and job. As a convinced European, he enjoys every opportunity to explore new corners of the continent, especially by train. Good music must never be missing, no matter whether through headphones or at concerts and festivals.
