Dr. Christopher Garthe

Spatial sustainability communication

At studio klv I am responsible for all topics concerning nature and sustainability in relation to exhibitions, visitor centres and museums.

To communicate nature and sustainability topics in a contemporary and attractive way, professional communication and educational work is necessary. For a long time now, my field of activity has been determined by my commitment to the society of tomorrow.

In addition to my work as an exhibition organizer, I have pursued my curiosity about nature and sustainability in research and voluntary work:
