In 2020 the Netherlands will be the world’s circular hotspot. Aiding our efforts to ensure that this happens, we had the pleasure to receive State Secretary of Infrastructure & the Environment, Wilma Mansveld, on March 9th at de Ceuvel.Besides Circle Economy, we had representatives with whom we collaborate from the municipality of Amsterdam, MVO Nederland, Het Groene Brein, and Waternet around the table. Also Metabolic together with architect firm Space & Matter, initiators of De Ceuvel, were there to tell the story behind this closed loop neighborhood project.During the visit from the State Secretary we shared some of the projects that we are working on, and were pleased to engage in a discussion with her, about how to make the circular economy “common sense” to all companies - not just the big players. In Dutch newspaper Het Parool the state secretary comments that “..we already think of our glass bins as normal, and that’s of course the first step for the circular economy. If it’s happening in your own neighbourhood, it gets closer, and you realize that you can do it too.”We believe that the best way to to do this is by executing as many innovative examples as possible and in the process becoming a living lab that the rest of the world can learn from. And above all by creating a favorable position that is beneficial to both the Dutch society as well as the Dutch economy. Foto credit: Jurn de Winter
