I have a great passion for sustainable development. for me this is the future and we co-create the future right now.

Over the years I have set up an energy cooperative in the Netherlands, and created several networks of social and sustainable changemakers.
Currently I am working on a social trade system in the south of Portugal. This is in collaboration with local partners and the Social Trade Organisation in the Netherlands. These kind of networks support the local community and local business. And help to survive and actually thrive during times of economic crisis.
