Information
WASTED is a project of CITIES FOUNDATION (www.citiesfoundation.org ), an independent urban research organization evolved  into catalyst and incubator of sustainable solutions. Since 2015, WASTED  (www.wastedlab.nl )invented and experimented on developing a reward system with a growing community of 5000 people (1800 families) in Amsterdam Noord.  Confident in the potential of the initiative, and keen on growing our impact towards a great plastic transition, we now aim to reward as many people as possible to live a plastic conscious lifestyle.

This internship is composed by three lines of work.

From one side, the applicant will work on researching which are the paths towards a plastic conscious lifestyle, from the easiest steps to the most radical choices. This is purely desk research (publications & media) and first level interview with zero plastic lifestyle representative from NL, US and UK and Europe in general. What are the first steps? What is needed? How difficult is it?

The second part of the research is focused on creating a matrix, a model to help a possible citizen to go through a plastic conscious lifestyle. The goal is to create a programme which provides coins to access rewards. We need to calculate the amount of effort made for each action and quantify it in terms of coins.

The third line of work is focused more on users experiences. We seek to develop a series of whatzapp groups with volunteers and test, co-create, co-elaborate and co-criticize and learn from their transition

The applicant must:

Be extremely proficient in english and preferably dutch
Be ready to change his/her own lifestyle
Be willing to help share and communicate the research progress on social media
