Harvard considers that one of the 100 leaders of the future is Argentine

Jerónimo Batista Bucher was distinguished by the American university thanks to his project with which he seeks to combat plastic pollution.

Argentines around the world
Jerónimo Batista Bucher

 Talent  and awareness about what matters, many times, do not depend on age.  Jerónimo Batista Bucher , at 21 years old, is the creator of a project that seeks to stop one of the main environmental challenges of today:  plastic pollution a. That's why he was elected by  Harvard  as one of the  100 leaders of the future. 
Graduated from the ORT,  Jerónimo studied  Biotechnology at the University of San Martín. His project is called  Sorui  and is a machine capable of making  disposable glasses from algae  s. When thrown away, the glass disappears within a week and does not pollute.

By the end of 2017, he had already been selected to participate in  the G20 World Youth Summit  in Germany, where Angela Merkel herself captivated. He also received awards from the Chamber of Deputies of La Nación, the Ministry of Production, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of the Nation (currently Secretariat), the Honorable Deliberative Council of Vicente López, Kairos Society, the Argentine-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, JCI and INVAP, among other institutions.

 Harvard 's turn now: on June 15, he will travel to Boston to receive the award and participate in debates in  Cambridge with Nobel Prize winners. Jerónimo is undoubtedly one of the young people who can change our country and the world.
