💡 What drives a person to change from the “security” of a job to the uncertainty of the social entrepreneurship?
💡 What makes a person go from being a spectator in the current social and environmental challenges to become part of the solution?
💡 What’s the future that the current Circular Changemakers dream to create?
💡 And, how can we develop solutions that connect different actors, promoting collaboration and greater strength and resources to create a future that we can be proud of?
Once again, I left Almere behind and I went towards Utrecht, one of my favourite cities in the Netherlands, where I had a really pleasant afternoon, with the amazing and inspiring Olette Bollen from Connect4value. Among tours around the city of Utrecht, I learned more about Olette’s story and the story and motivations behind Connect4Value, which I am sure you will all like as much as I did.

With this propose, Connect4Value develops a set of solutions and tools, which empower public and private organizations, to join forces and to enhance their positive impact. Together they can develop solutions for the current environmental and social challenges, creating a more positive future for our planet.
