Hometown: Den Haag
April 12, 2013
from sept. 2012 I am involved as a freelance advisor and researcher in an green educational project about urban agriculture. This project is about innovation in agrologistics networks, new town-country relations and new business models for local food initiatives by farmers and citizens in the urban area.
Spontaneous city as an alternative direction of p2p thinking and urban planning opposed to traditional rigid city planning. See the rise up of al kind of collaborative/sharing economy activities in our neighbourhoods like local energy initiatives, urban farming and popup stores runned by citizens and social entrepreneurs.
As a social entrepreneur and ambassador of Kracht in NL I am focussed on working together with bottom-up initiatives for societal transition and collaborative economy. Such as new cooperatives for urban agriculture and local sustainable energy.
