Jeroen Boon

Consultant, Teacher, and Director in Den Haag, Nederland

Founder of Kiemkracht and a social innovator into societal transitions. I work together with others to energize and nurture long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, safe and environmentally sustainable communities.

Currently I am working on the acceleration agenda knowledge about social entrepreneurship in higher and academic education in corporation with Social Enterprise Lab Utrecht and Specht in de stad at the request of BZK Ministry.

And I am involved as advisor and knowledge broker in a green educational project about urban agriculture and innovation in agrologistics networks, town-country relations and new business models for local food initiatives by farmers and citizens in the urban area.

Summarized I am focussed on pioneering bottom up initiatives like new cooperatives for self-building, urban agriculture, sustainable energy and community care, which make our neighborhoods, villages and cities more sustainable, resilient and thrivable.

My professional background strengthens on matters of participatory planning methods and community-based social change in neighbour-hoods en cities. In the past I have consulted for several environmental NGO’s with topics ranging from multiple landuse, sustainable area development and educational programs about climate change and renewable energy.
