Location of the activity
Amsterdam University College
Background
The theme was ‘Changing the Game’ – a suiting subject to host a batch of inspirational speakers with ‘ideas worth spreading’. After a successful Pitch Night at Pakhuis de Zwijger, WASTED Project Manager Barbara Koole was chosen to go on to the official TEDx event, hosted by Amsterdam University College.

Joining a line-up of game-changing speakers and a sold out crowd of tuned-in audience members, Barbara dove into community activation and local plastic waste recycling and upcycling.

Changing the game as a local solutions initiative addressing the global problem of plastic waste, the philosophy behind WASTED’s action plan is designed to elevate and accelerate both social design on the local level and innovative, sustainable production standards focused on re-utilizing abundant plastic waste materials. Reaching beyond local aims, WASTED’s motivation is also grounded in opening up knowledge exchange worldwide through open sourced documents.
