Nienke Binnendijk

After graduating as an economist, Nienke Binnendijk organized projects and meetups to help tackle some nasty design challenges in our current economy. Nowadays, she is business director of BlueCity Lab: the first circular makerspace in the world where bioneers prototype their solution for a waste-free city.

She aims to provide start-ups and scale-ups with access to circular resources, knowledge and talent, and to turn ideas into action. Ultimately: to help sustainable entrepreneurs to grow from intention to impact.

At and&, Binnendijk will be describing some of BlueCity’s European projects. Plastic Twist, which aims to revalue recycled plastic, using blockchain technology. And Wastefew (Waste Food-Energy-Water Urban Living Labs) which aims to map and substantially reduce waste in the food-energy-water nexus in cities across Europe, Africa, and South America.

If you’re a like-minded blue pioneer, keen to surf the new economy, this is one talk you won’t want to miss.
