Circulaire economie gaat over alles behalve het sluiten van een cirkel. Het gaat over het opzetten van een metabolisme zoals we dat ook uit eco-systemen kennen. Een georganiseerde kluwen van verbindingen die van elkaar afhankelijk zijn. Deze relaties zijn vaak sector-overschrijdend en onbekend maar nodig om een functionerend geheel te kunnen vormen. Kwaliteit en gezondheid van de gebruikte materialen zijn hier cruciaal.

Ik geloof dat we voor de oplossingen van vandaag en morgen een andere manier van doen en denken nodig hebben. Ik wil onderdeel zijn van de transformatie richting circulaire systemen van ontwerp, nutri√ęnten kringlopen en reverse logistics tot visievorming en conceptontwikkeling.

About mesh-maker Sanne van den Dungen

I am driven by a mind-set in which production and consumption can be aimed at creating a positive impact instead of reducing a negative impact, to create sustainable business for everyone to benefit from. For that, I believe, partnership with multiple stakeholders and a holistic approach is crucial. I have worked for nearly four years at EPEA (Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency) supporting companies to realize their ambitions in the implementation of the principles of Cradle to Cradle¬ģ in their products and production processes. Examples are: Van Puijenbroek Textiel (REWORK collection -workwear), Schellens (home textiles), PUMA (InCycle collection) and the first Cradle to Cradle¬ģ Certified fashion collection for Belgium by JBC.

I resigned from my job at EPEA at the end of 2014 to start working as an independent consultant and worked on e.g. circular workwear, safety shoes and on Circular Valley: a hotspot for circular innovation near Schiphol. In addition I am teaching at SLEM as a guest lecturer. Currently I am also working on a project that tries to link western consumers and Indian organic cotton farmers together, to create healthy, high quality products and improved living standards for smallholder farmers in suicide prone areas. I have an MSc in Plant Sciences with a specialisation in nutrient management and smallholder farming systems, a BSc in Organic Production Systems and a BSc in Fine Arts.

Creative and curious with special interest in agriculture and production processes. Specialties: Organic and sustainable agriculture, Cradle to Cradle Certification (V2.1.1 and V3), Material Health Assessment (ABC-X assessment), Textiles, Bio-polymers, Biogenic resource managment, farm system analysis, nutrient managment, agriculture, circular economy.
