I am joining this course because I would like to get to know more about climate change issues, sustainable development and engineering/entrepreneurial solutions in diverse socio-technical contexts. In addition, I'd like to prepare myself for the summer school The Journey that I've been accepted into :-)

This course will be successful for me when I have learned more about the complexity of the climate change problem (or, rather, opportunity) in the specific context of Europe and when I've learned the steps I may take and the tools I may use to develop ideas and solutions myself.

Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now lies within the agricultural and energy sectors; both complex systems of mass-production that seriously impact our quality of life.

Hi,

My name is Jorian. I'm from the Netherlands and a MSc student Environmental Management at the University of Amsterdam. I'm joining the Hamburg, London, West-Midlands journey at the end of july.

I am joining this course because I want to actively contribute to the energy transition. My dream is to create business cases where for all relevant stakeholders value is created from waste streams in order to shift towards a circular economy. I believe that often a gap exists between a promising technology and successful implementation because of a lack of resources. I believe that rather than having a good idea, it is key to understand how you're idea should be marketed. That is why I joined the journey.

This course will be successful for me when I have met interesting people to work and share ideas with, and ideally have set the foundations for a successful business concept.

Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now is soil regeneration, sustainable clean water production (desalinisation), biobased fuels and GHG emission capture.

Hello everyone, hope to meet you soon!

I am joining this course because I’ve always been very passionate about sustainability, and climate change is the biggest obstacle to obtaining it. I want to dedicate my professional life to that passion. I have been an entrepreneur for 4 years, working with sustainability oriented projects, I will be ding a master’s degree in renewable energy and this course is the perfect opportunity to keep developing and scaling my projects.

This course will be successful for me when I get a deeper grasp of the tools to design and execute a climate business model. The best possible scenario is to find the resources, partners and alliances to make one project a reality and achieve economic sustainability within a reasonable timeframe.

Within the area of climate change mitigation, my biggest interest right now is Urban transitions, specially shared clean energy systems and smart use of space (asset optimization). Also I have an interest in technology, and since I know some programming and understand probability and statistics and know how to apply them into modelling I am also interested in Decision Metrics and finance.
