News from circular economy entrepreneurs in Rotterdam

BlueCity Symbiosys festival: interdependence of humans and nature

How do humans and nature depend on each other? And how does this interdependence work through in aspects of our lives, like the products we buy and the way we work? During the Symbiosis symposium at BlueCity in Rotterdam, circular economy pioneers shared their stories on their entrepreneurial journey and the way they bring humans and nature closer together.

DIT's student-correspondents, Chloe Tan and Jordis Wunder, attended the Symbiosis festival and reported on the circular economy stories they experienced there. Chloe attended a deepdive on Invasive Species, where they discussed how invasive species can be seen and used as a resource in the circular economy. Jordis attended a deepdive on duckweed, where they talked about FlipTheCity, a circular start-up that uses duckweed to produce tiles.

You can read the full blogposts of Chloe and Jordis on the website of BlueCity: read the blog on Invasive Species here and the blog on Duckweed & FlipTheCity here.
