They have chosen to help Wander Project change the world.

Executive Director

Zander Chase

Zander is a lifelong outdoors enthusiast who is passionate about solving issues surrounding climate change. He started off his career at Facebook Marketplace working to connect people buying and selling used goods and then shifted his focus to climate tech solutions, specifically sustainable food systems and vertical farming.

Zander's favorite way to connect with nature is through spending time in the mountains, and he is passionate about enabling others to experience and protect the beauty of our natural lands. He believes every individual has the power to make a difference and is eager to empower others through the mission of Wander Project.
