Christiaan Kuipers works at Urgenda and focuses on Circular Economy. As connector, booster and creative, he accelerates a circular economy in Fryslân. Circular Friesland shows that through cross-sectoral cooperation, a circular economy has a lot of advantages on provincial level.

Professional background
During the Masters Ecology & Evolution, Christiaan was concerned with the principles of resilience and adaptability of nature. The awareness of global food and climate problems has motivated Christiaan to also study Energy & Environmental Sciences. After a graduation period at Rabobank Nederland, as well as at the Environmental Assesment Agency, Christiaan can now practice the circular laws of nature in business by ‘doing’ in various projects at Urgenda.

Personal motto
”The only excuse for the way we manifest ourselves today, is that we are unconsciously not realise the consequences of our conduct.”
