A group of 15 international Cradle 2 Cradle Design Consultants visited Amsterdam late september. Siem Haffmans organized a weekend full of presentations and site visits.
The group had participated in a training at the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA) in 2011 in Hamburg and included design consultants from, among others, IBM, EPEA, Van der Veer designers, TU Delft, Design Freiheit and Full Circle Design.
The programme provided a mix of business and pleasure, with presentation by:
- Fioen van Balgooi from Refinity,
- Reinier Halbertsma from We are perspective, and
- Douwe-Jan Joustra from OnePlanet Architecture Institute.
In addition there was time to exchange Cradle 2 Cradle experiences; make a tour of the Elle Inside Design hotspots and for a dinner at Pllek, a restaurant made with recycled shipping containers in Amsterdam North.
