Open Solutions Team

Shabnam Anvar (Ph.D in Law, ReCompose founder)
Interested in heirloom seeds since 1996, Shabnam started working on seed regulation in 2002 when two French farmers said that they were not allowed to exchange seed. She dug up the subject doing her PhD on the subject at the Sorbonne in Paris and published it online free of access (in French). She continues to work with various organisations and projects on seed issues and co-founded Open Solutions  to promote solutions in this field. She is also a sustainability designer and facilitator at Recompose.
