Christine Zimmermann-Lössl

Association for Vertical Farming e.V.
Chairwoman
Christine Zimmerman-Loessl has a background based on studying political science, sinology and philosophy at Munich University - which was the starting point for her interest in international work. She is a well-known speaker and advocate for indoor/vertical farming in the past 8 years now.

Before she has worked in different Asian countries which has given her experience and deeper insight in the culture and people. She acted as a project manager for risk analysis and crisis management at the European Center for International Security. Networking was always easy for Christine and she founded the Asia Network Information Center – combining her talents for projects, research and ideas. Later on, as the representative for the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in China, she took responsibility in different areas and led a German-Chinese Management Institute, initiated environmental protection and poverty alleviation projects, as well as engaged in women’s programs.

Christine was inspired by her son’s interests in Vertical Farming and got involved. She founded with a group of likeminded people the first nonprofit in the world - the Association for Vertical Farming (AVF) in 2013, since then she is acting as the chairwoman of AVF. “Through AVF we are raising awareness and building a network of like-minded people, industry and science for the broad implementation of Vertical Farming around the world”.
