    Second edition on Green & Fair Food

    During Dutch Design Week, the audience was introduced to the topic of green and fair food. The projects developed during the residency programme ranged from the nomadic tastes of Kyrgyzstan, to the ancient traditions of a remote self-sustainable village in Indonesia, passing by a waste facility that turn waste into organic compost in Tanzania.

    Age of Wonderland ambition to connect ideas and people from all over the world with the local community in the Netherlands was successfully achieved through the many workshops, pop up labs and the guided tours. The exchange of ideas created new insights and possibilites on how to develop a more sustainable approach to the (food) systems we have become part of.

    Yoyo Yogasmana from Indonesia received the first Ecocoin handed over by Koert van Mensvoort (Next Nature). The knowledge from often forgotten, remote cultures proved once again to be of great value and importance for the development of new perspectives on our future. According to Yoyo we should be more in tune with nature to become resilient. 'Only then there will be enough resources for everyone.'

    Katera's start up in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania was succesfully embraced by the audience as well as international companies like DSM and BAM. His idea to solve the waste problem in his hometown using low tech solutions in collaboration with the local community and the authorities brought him to create his own Start up 'Guavay'. Newspaper FD published an interview with Katera.

    We want to thank our partners, all the Age of Wonderland fellows and their Dutch counterparts, the team, students from the Food Non Food department at the Design Academy, DSM, Rijnconsult, BAM, and last but not least our dedicated volunteers to make this event possible.
