The Social Tech Tour #3: 02025

Featured image

The Social Tech Tour is a series of site visits to innovative, tech-enabled social enterprises, organized by Waag, in collaboration with Amsterdam Smart City. The main objective is ‘peer learning’: letting innovators and practitioners learn from each other. Every edition, hosts and participants will co-create a roadmap on one particular real-life challenge. This time we will be welcomed by Pauline Westendorp and Thijs Haverkamp at their Energy Breakfast, a tasty community get-together on sustainable energy.

Are you working with tech or sustainability and are curious to learn how other actors use digital technologies for a better society?

A global rise of temperature of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels will have irremediable consequences for our planet, the latest IPCC report reveals. Many ask for an accelerated, collaborative action, stronger policies and more awareness. Digital platforms find increasingly more implementation in collaborative action. How far can these digital tools take us? What are the possibilities and limitations for people to unite and set the tone for a nation-wide discourse on climate action?

This edition is dedicated to 02025, a movement by citizens in Amsterdam with the goal to reach zero CO2 emissions by 2025. The guiding question for this event is, how can citizens take a leading role in the energy transition?

This event will be English spoken. The more detailed programme will be announced soon.

02025 is a movement, started by the social enterprise Oranje Energie, that aims for an energy transition in Amsterdam. The movement connects and supports various citizens and organisations active in the field of sustainable energy. The goal is to reach 020 zero C02 emission in 2025 with renewable, fair and safe energy. A digital platform provides the tool for this move, and the base for building a sustainable energy future for Amsterdam.
