“The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating.”

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.

How can we use smart technologies to foster local economies? How can co-operatives in neighborhoods enhance local value? How can citizens be a economical part of their own energy transition, future healthcare, security or food production?

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.
