The explorer.land project stage @NOAH Zurich aims to facilitate investments and funding towards impactful projects restoring and protecting nature. For the first time ever, a networking event with leading startups and investors featured a carefully curated climate & biodiversity project portfolio. Only projects with meaningful and verifiable climate, biodiversity, and social impacts participated.

On the explorer.land project stage, project presenters:
