GROHE X Podcast – Together For Sustainability

Episode #5: Alexandra Steed and Marcella Hansch on the topic of how a resilient nature can be created for future generations

Our 5th Together For Sustainability podcast addresses the question of how we can create a resilient nature and environment for future generations while facing challenges like sea level rise and biodiversity loss.

In this episode, podcast host Marcella Hansch, CEO of everwave foundation, welcomes Alexandra Steed, expert and chartered landscape architect from Alexandra Steed URBAN/London, as guest.
