Kiemkracht is committed together with others for striving to sustainable area development, by influencing fixed routines, methods and prejudices. Special attention is given to supporting groundbreaking initiatives from below, that cities, villages and neighborhoods make more livable, sustainable and resilient for living, working and recreation. This challenge requires on all levels new values, there for other ways of learning, working and organizing. Our network is a contribution to the necessary cooperation and link between goverment, business, research and education institutions in the context of these transitions and innovations towards a sustainable society.

As a social entrepreneur, I am looking for practical ways to reshape a rapidly changing society, in which active citizenship, self-organizing, bottom-up initiatives will have growing priority! With my company and together with others I support local citizen initiatives and the development of new cooperatives for self-build, urban agriculture, sustainable energy and community care in neighbourhoods, villages and cities.
