The Circular Economy – Young Changemakers Community 10

Starters4Communities, Impact HUB and partners host this community for young people who want to kick-start or advance an impact driven career. It enables, inspires and connects young people to start their own social enterprise, take on social challenges together or find work with impact driven employers.

The community provides inspiration, networks, problem solving power, a testing stage, workshops, matching events and more! There are sessions at the Impact HUB Amsterdam on the second Tuesday of every month.

The Circular Economy

Young changemakers community #10

After a joyful summer break we are back to business with Young Changemakers #10: The Circular Economy. Recycling, repair, re-use, remanufacturing or refurbishing, these are all methods social entrepreneurs adopt to create value in the Circular Economy. With new smart ways and more durable designs we can fight mass consumption and transform away from the make, take and dispose economy.

For this Young Changemakers Community event we have invited entrepreneurs working in the Circular Economy to share their story and pose a real challenge to the audience. This event will be hosted at a great venue matching the theme: Café de Ceuvel in Amsterdam-North.

• Tuesday 12th September
Café de Ceuvel, Korte Papaverweg 2 t/m 6, Amsterdam
• 6.45pm registration
• Programme runs from 7pm – 9pm+ drinks

About De Ceuvel
De Ceuvel is a city playground for innovation and creativity. An experiment in which they try to make sustainability tangible, understandable and fun. They love to share their knowledge and hope that their vision will grow, spread and multiply.
This evening we invite you to be inspired by their story and dig into their challenge to find creative solutions in an interactive co-creation session.

***The first challenge***
Het Ware Noorden is a platform in Amsterdam-North that makes smart use of old materials. They do this by connecting craftsmen with whoever is interested to rebuild new items. Do you want to know how they do this and how they scale their platform? They will explain it all and together with you generate ideas for sustainable growth.

***The second challenge****
i-did believes in a social and cyclic society. A society where products and commodities are not thrown away, where everyone contributes to continue the cycle or materials, and a society where no one is excluded. That’s why we reassess textile raw materials and supply of labor: our circular design products are made of textile surpluses and used clothes that have been thrown away. Furthermore, they are manufactured by people previously excluded on the labor market.

The challenge is to design their next product! With recycled material provided you can get your creative juices flowing. What circular product will you create that can be produced by the people they work with?

#Inspire
We start the event with inspiring cases from two circular initiatives.

#Cocreate
We put our brilliant minds together to help these entrepreneurs move forward.

#Connect
We end the evening with drinks, networking and reflect on the lessons learned.

Why join?
Get inspired, learn and connect with impact-driven young changemakers and social entrepreneurs. And have a good time!
