Esteban Servat is the founder of EcoLeaks. He is an Argentine-American biologist living in Berlin. He spent nearly a decade working in the Silicon Valley, where he also got his master’s of Biotechnology. Sick and tired of the world of Silicon Valley, he moved back to Argentina to start a project to create a self-sustainable, multicultural community in Mendoza province. Everything was going well until the government brought fracking to the province. Then he suddenly turned into an activist and created EcoLeaks.
