“Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world’. Through its work, Biovision seeks to encourage everyone to make a personal contribution to a fairer and healthier world. It also provides them with the required support in the form of practical tips for everyday living. I enjoy being part of this process and it gives me great satisfaction”.
After graduating with a Masters in agricultural sciences from ETH Zurich, Marcel Anderegg completed further training at the ETH World Food System Center, where the entire value-added chain for organically produced foods is the subject of close scrutiny. He then worked for five months as a human rights observer for Peace Watch Switzerland in Honduras. This deployment gave him a personal, in-depth understanding of living conditions in a country dominated by violence, the absence of the rule of law and massive inequality as well as their impact on humans and the environment. By the second month of his visit to Latin America he had already developed a strong attachment to its culture and people. Following his return from Honduras, he did an internship for several months at a vineyard on Lake Zurich where he increased his understanding of the demands and challenges of agriculture.
Since November 2016, Marcel Anderegg has been responsible for running and developing the exhibition “CLEVER”, the fun way to test shopping intelligence. In addition, he is a member of Team Switzerland working on agro-political issues associated with the implementation of Agenda 2030 and writes articles on sustainable consumption and production for the website and Newsletter.
In his leisure time, he enjoys sport and has played handball for many years. He has also been an enthusiastic tennis player since childhood and for many years was the junior trainer, giving tennis lessons and running camps. During the rest of his free time he enjoys reading and loves being outside, in the mountains and in the company of friends and family.
