Annelies is an ICT-engineer, started as a software developer, worked for years in several jobs, made a career as a manager. She was inspired by Gunter Pauli in 2012, followed his training in Belgium (Blue Economy) and try to figure out how to get materials out of our IT hardware. She did not succeed in this, but was aware of the fact something had to change. This is where she focussed on growing mushroom on coffee ground as a waste. From there on several further steps we can make in order to improve on sustainability and collaboration.
