Matti Benne

Matti Benne supports the Borderstep team as a student assistant in the project Climate Protection Potentials of the Digital Transformation.

He is studying geography and political science with the aim of obtaining a bachelor’s degree at Leibniz Universität Hannover. His focus is on sustainability and environmental research.

He is particularly interested in questions of sustainable social structures and the communication of sustainability aspects. For this reason, Matti is also active in the Senate of the University of Hannover as a student representative in the Sustainability Working Group. In his free time, he intensively deals with aspects of an environmentally friendly lifestyle. The understanding of nature in Asian cultures is an interesting reference point for him.

Born and grown up on the northernmost mountain range in Germany, the Deister, he sees himself as a real mountaineer and likes to move in nature. If he is not drawn to higher altitudes, he spends his time rowing and cycling.
