Glocal connector, changemaker, digitalization & collaboration strategist focussing on teal management and the redesign of organizational structures and collaborations. Knowledge management expert & lecturer on the domain of commons, information management in communities & new economic structures.

After 12 years of government expertise in the social domain as a public professional and consultant, since 5 years focussing on innovation through:

- new economic hierarchies and startups in the sharing economy

- open data & open source sharing

Sharing cities are not complex. Anyone can start sharing, creating a share fest or use sharing as a different way of dealing with complex societal, entrepreneurial or policy issues. I help city councils, organizations, entrepreneurs and citizen experts to create impact in transformative change and innovation.

Coordinator Urban Commons Transition Netherlands

In the international research project FLOK Society policypapers are being made for a peer to peer focussed society with knowledge commons as a vehicle for better care, environment, education etc. Knowledge commons are groups of people specialized in making, distributing, creating or consuming something in open source ways. By unlocking knowledge radically better solutions can be found for cities.
