With more and more people settling down in cities, urban sustainability requires us to take a closer look at the relationship of cities with their surroundings. This implies that we need to think about the reduction of the use of non-renewable resources, plan the possibilities for handling waste, create a healthy living environment and support stronger social structures while meeting our economic needs in cities that are becoming more high tech and ‘smart’.
Join as one of the 30 Dutch and ASEAN young professionals, students and entrepreneurs in Jakarta for the Orange ASEAN Factory. Orange Factory is an intense 3 week workshop for talented young professionals, entrepreneurs and (master) students from the Netherlands and Southeast Asia designing innovative solutions for sustainability challenges in the region.
