We, the students of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, know that there really is no time to postpone the reform of the economy any longer. And that’s why this student track is here. First we’re going to list what we think needs to be done now – and what this means for our education and practical research. We do this in forty minutes in the form of a panel. After that, we will spread out over the festival to see what the driving forces of the circular economy are doing in the Province of Noord-Holland and the metropolitan region of Amsterdam. Then we will come back to share our final statements with each other and with the wider audience of the conference: what do we think should happen now? These statements will afterwards also be distributed as short videos.
14:15 – 15:15
We encourage you to follow the keynote and panel discussion in the plenary part of the festival. This forms a rich ground for our own panel discussion and the discussions afterwards.
15:20 – 16:00
Panel discussion and chat in which we students discuss what needs to be done to reform the economy now – and what this means for our education and practical research.
16:-05 – 16:50
Spread out over the conference and get inspired how start-ups and SMEs in Noord-Holland and the region are innovating in the field of circular economy.
