Our team

Poko began as an undergraduate student project to improve plastic pollution. Our team has evolved alongside Poko and the members have moved on to Masters or Doctorate studies in Tartu and the United Kingdom. We maintain our passion about the environment that unites across our diverse educational background of geography, biology,, genetic engineering and particle physics. Our team has been awarded 3rd place in the energy and -resource savings contest “Negavatt“ and a Ecoinnovation prize from the competition “Kaleidoskoop“.
