Weblog week 21: C2C BIZZ midterm event
The first day started with a welcome by Nicole Ramaekers, the ambassador of C2C in Brainport Avenue. Then the ‘Delicious Garbage Men’ did a show, explaining why C2C is important. The keynote speaker of the first day was Douwe Jan Joustra, who explained the difference between C2C and circular economy. After a short break the C2C BIZZ project was presented and in the afternoon there were three excursions. One visited the High Tech Campus and the Venco Campus. One visited the Brainport Avenue and the company PANalytical. And one visited Venlo and the C2C ExpoLAB. The day ended with a dinner.
The second day visitors were welcomed by Henri de Wijkerslooth, mare of Waalre. The keynote speaker of this day was Jacqueline Cramer, the former minister. Then there were four parallel session, all with very interesting presentations. After lunch Daan Q told is story about building cathedral’s, which was very inspiring for the workshops during the rest of the afternoon. Berend Aanraad of The Natural Step guided the Transition Lab. I hope to share the graphic recording of this session with you later.
Finally it was time for the last drinks and the end of the event. Because it were two long and tiring days, I did not even talk to all members of our team at the end of the day, but I expect everybody to be satisfied with the way things went. Of course improvements are always possible and there were some things that did not go as we expected, so we will evaluate the event next week. And two weeks later we already have the first meeting for the preparation of the C2C BIZZ end event!
