Closing the loop projects
I am used to bringing together a variety of partners and designing new projects to implement innovation. I guided over 50 project proposals between 2011 and 2015 as civil servant working for a European Fund. Once projects are up and running, I oversee project planning and finances.
For Waste Free Oceans (WFO) I support projects on an international level, rising awareness for the marine waste problem and setting up closing the loop projects.
Actions vary from:
- detecting hotspots;
- awareness raising in the involved community;
- training of technical staff for the collection of waste and
- providing guidance on transport, sorting, pretreatment.
Once the final product is designed, I offer a communication plan to tell the story to a wide range of consumers of WFO's partners such as Ecover (see picture).
For WFO the Americas, I also wrote the year program, which I developed in close collaboration with the board members.
