Manuel Sand.


I'm a Professor of Outdoor sports and Adventure management at the University of applied Management in Germany! I try to teach as much as possible outdoors in active lectures, instead of sitting in a closed room. While teaching outdoors and during my own outdoor activities I need professional equipment.


I joined Tenson's Community with Purpose because I am convinced by their sustainable solutions and their products. This is something that is not only important to myself, but also to my students. I look forward to helping Tenson to make green yet functional products for a better future.
