I am Kertész Balázs, environmental engineer. I currently work as an environmental consultant and I am the operator of Wastehunter, as a founder member of JÖN Foundation.
I got my degree at the Faculty of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at Szent István University, also I have a degree in Environmental Management System Development (Tüv Academy) and I have professional experience in environmental management (KDV-KTF).
As a leading developer, I am involved in creating a new waste management platform, one of the goals of the JÖN Foundation, which we plan to launch in 2019.
Regular sporting is a part of my life since I was a child, I believe in the saying: 'healthy mind in a healthy body'. In plogging I can connect my love of sports and love of environment.
I prefer a varied diet and have been an environmentally conscious consumer for years. I prefer inland, locally produced, manufactured products, which also means less household waste.
During my professional work I did research, which I started within the doctoral program of Szent István University, and with the help of these funds I developed a product-licensed complex compost mixture. I also dealt a lot with the rock called alginit, which is a rare natural resource with Hungarian roots. I have given many lectures on it.
My goal is to help people who are not proficient in science to understand the context of environmental systems. I believe, that every time it begins with the individuals, they have to take care of the environment to start the process mentioned above. To achieve this, I try to influence those, who are less susceptible to it.
As a temporary host, I have already had several dogs and kittens in need. I also find the issue of animal protection very important. I like to see others do the same and I appreciate it, because I find essential to transmit an exemplary legacy to the next generations. I would like to leave a vibrant, healthy and sustainable world for my child and for the posterity.
