Urgenda

KSI is one of the founding fathers of the new foundation Urgenda (http://www.urgenda.nl/), a movement for transition towards a sustainable society. After one year of existence Urgenda has met all its goals as set in the Action Plan for year 1;

  • a sustainability platform of visionary people in their own domain (business, government, science, NGOs and intermediairies) has started to prepare a vision for 2050
  • Two so-called Icon projects have started, as well as two regional Urgenda projects.
  • The Urgenda has formed different coalitions, like projects in sustainable mobility, a floating city, sustainable catering, etc.

After the summer regional tours will start to show the frontrunners in sustainability to the world, and get attention for the urgency and the solutions for many different unsustainable practices and systems.
