Katharina Grund studied geography, geology and biology and then worked as a journalist, among others projects, for Süddeutsche Zeitung and Spektrum der Wissenschaft. At that time she wrote an article for Spektrum direkt specifically about the European Green Belt which drew her attention to EuroNatur for the first time.

Katharina Grund has been part of the EuroNatur team since 2007 and is responsible today for press and public relations for EuroNatur. Since 2010 she has received valuable support with the arrival of Angie Rother in 2010. Her own tasks cover editing the EuroNatur magazine, the annual report and our internet presence;  she writes appeals for donations, project reports and press releases and is responsible for a range of other publications on EuroNatur. She also keeps up contacts with journalists and media and works to extend this network.

In her own words: “I work for EuroNatur because I deeply believe in it. EuroNatur projects are of many different kinds but they are all linked by a central purpose and I regard the demanding task of getting the purpose and the particular activities of EuroNatur across to the public as very rewarding.”
