System change in sustainable and circular economy
Global Academy Foundation and Ashoka Netherlands invite you to join us in Spring House Amsterdam. We will bring together cross-sectoral Change Leaders in the fields of Sustainable & Circular Economy and explore how collaborative solutions are defining the future of System Change.
Two of these change leaders, we celebrate in particular on this evening: Marina Silva and Aart van Veller.
We are honoured to be joined by Marina Silva who will share her personal journey towards System Change and Presidential nomination in her Brazilian homeland. Among other global accolades, Mrs Silva has been named among the Champions of the Earth (United Nations Environmental Program, 2007), Top Global Thinkers (Foreign Policy Magazine List, 2010), Women of the Year (British Financial Times, 2014).
The event will also celebrate the induction of our latest Ashoka Fellow, Aart van Veller, a leading example of innovation in action. Aart has revolutionised the consumption of renewable energy, empowering both consumers and producers by establishing an alternative to the traditional system.
