As program developer Circularity in Urban Regions, Joppe builds collaborations between public organisations, businesses and researchers, across disciplines. Joppe initiates and develops projects that address the challenges cities and citizens face in the transition to a circular economy. His aim is to find solutions that stick, that create value for everyone involved, and that help us forward into a sustainable future.

Topics include, among others, monitoring the circular economy, green public procurement, circular area development, sustainable digitalization and circular solutions for the energy transition. Joppe has multiple years of experience in national and European sustainability projects, and advisory work on circular economy policies.

Having a background in physics, philosophy and history of science, Joppe loves connecting the complex world of technology with the even-more-complex world of humans. With professional experience in creative writing, theater and museum design he cares about reaching people.

Joppe believes that a more inclusive and more sustainable society is possible. He sees so many Amsterdam citizens, entrepreneurs, scientists, designers and policymakers working hard to make this transition happen, and is happy to join forces.

“Of course a sustainable future is possible. Our current economy of overconsumption is very recent. It comes from the mid-twentieth century. For ages we have lived differently together, and we will again.””
