Jennifer Porto (Moderator)

Born in Iowa (USA), performer and moderator Jennifer Porto has spent more than 15 years entertaining audiences on stages across Germany. Jennifer’s talents bridge the world of classical, modern, and popular music. She’s as comfortable singing Abba as she is singing Zemlinsky, and her unique and sophisticated blend of camp, conversation, and content leave audiences asking for more.
Jennifer is equally captivating as a moderator, navigating audiences and participants through live and digital programs that run the gamut from politics to youth engagement to environmental policy and the energy transition. As the host of the Green Sofa Dialogues, a web series called into being as a reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, Jennifer has been in conversation with some of the leading stakeholders working to make the Energiewende happen. Jennifer is thrilled to be co-moderator for the BETD 2021.
