Green IT Week

Featured image

By now we think we can safely say it is becoming an annual tradition. And so, we are happy to announce that for the third year running we are again organising our Green IT Week this November. It has also become clear that the term ‘week’ has proven to be a rather flexible term since this year’s edition is spanning from 7 – 30 November. Perhaps we should start calling it Green IT Weeks (or month), but that's something for later…

Green IT Week is dedicated to spotlight initiatives such as events, projects and good practices which help achieve sustainable targets and ambitions with ICT and technology in mind for individual organisations, government and society. Green IT is not just about making ICT itself more sustainable, but also about using these technologies to help address sustainability related societal challenges in general, such as the energy transition, mobility, smart cities and a circular economy.

- DCD Zettastructure – London (7 and 8 November)
- IT Room Infra – Den Bosch (14 November)
- ECP Jaarcongres – Den Haag (16 November)
- Design 4 Green – Worldwide 48 hour Design Challenge & Webinars (22 – 24 November)
- Amsterdam Economic Board – Circular Challenge #2 (23 November)
- EURECA at Datacenters Ireland and Datacentre World – Dublin, Paris and Franfurt (various dates)
- Green IT Amsterdam & NUON: GREEN IT LEADERS LIVE – Amsterdam (24 November)
- GreenIT + Amsterdam Smart City (30 November)

Green IT and Amsterdam Smart City join forces in the final event of the Green IT week:
On the 30th of November, we will host Smart Data, Smart City #6 on Smart Infrastructure.

ROEF brings you to unprecedented heights. Discover the intimate and inspiring festival on Amsterdam's most beautiful roofs.

- Only 2% of the roofs in Amsterdam are in use
- Just 1% of the flat roofs are green
- Meanwhile, it is becoming increasingly busy in the city
- More green is important in an extreme climate

ROEF invites you to view the city from above, discover green opportunities and celebrate the summer. We are above the hectic city. Go from roof to roof to roof: always a surprising program, theatrical performances, musical highlights, refreshing cocktails and sultry tunes.

Food Integrity Blockchained

Featured image

The 2nd edition of blockchain and food meet-ups will take place in the Posthoornkerk in Amsterdam.

There are only five blockchain applications in food being built globally today. In the last meet-up one case was discussed (organic grapes on a hyper ledger) and the second case will be presented this time. The case is from IBM with Walmart.

Blockchain is the technology behind BitCoin, the crypto currency that made a few geeks rich but is innovating the financial sector big time. And it has potential to do the same for food.

The evening will kick off with a blockchain quiz. FreedomLab will elaborate on public and private blockchains. A real food-geek is going to give her view on Food Integrity.

The Posthoorn kerk, a church in the center of Amsterdam, is the office of Global Orange. There will be integer food from IBM at the venue and GlobalOrange sponsors drinks.

18:00 Welcome - Yvo Gortemaker (Global Orange)
18:10 The Ultimate Blockchain Bitch Quiz - Marieke de Ruyter de Wildt (The F01Q)
18:45 Food Integrity - Silvia Maranci (Abinish)
19:00 Public and private Blockchains - Arief Huhn (The Freedom Lab)
20:00 Case 2: Food safety and Walmart - Louis de Bruin (IBM)

Come and find out more about the use of block chain in food integrity. You are welcome to bring your friend, supplier, supermarket and lets revolutionize food.
