Jeroen Boon is an urban pollinator traversing the intersections between social entrepreneurship, next economy, digital technology and smart sharing cities. Recently he has done research together with LSA-citizens about new perspectives on community-based social enterprises in The Hague. How can such co-operatives in neighborhoods contribute to the local economy and create work?
How can we use smart technologies to foster local economies and can citizens be a economical part of their own energy transition, future healthcare or food production?
Jeroen has two Bachelor degrees, one in Ecological Landscape Planning and one in Infrastructure and Spatial Planning. He also completed the course Social Innovation in exciting times, about practice and theory in transitionmanagement, at the Wageningen Business School.
