InterCHANGES is a series of interactive events for, and by mission-driven people. It offers ongoing opportunities to share & co-create knowledge, while nurturing a safe space for long lasting relationships. Together with whom it must concern we address challenges and strive for a better future.

How can we shape the environment that we live in, while enabling our planet to thrive?

What if we say yes to working towards a fully circular, bio based industry? Then which essential challenges are we encountering along the way? What are potential approaches? With who can and should we take required steps? Closing the loop between suppliers, designers and clients, what entails our personal future role? And how will we collaborate as shared owners?
