ELS external PhD candidate Bas van den Berg, educational coordinator of the Mission Zero centre of expertise at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, has been nominated for the shortlist of the DJ100, the 100 most impactful sustainability activists under the age of 32 in the Netherlands.
The last few years, Bas has committed himself to transforming (higher) education to tackle wicked sustainability problems to learn towards a more regenerative, circular and just society. Major steps for this have been taken and more than 2000 students per year across mbo, hbo and wo now engage with regional transition challenges on an annual basis. This includes (co-)leading the redesign of the introduction of the HBO-ICT programme (500-700 students p.a.) and the BFM Circular Business Challenge (1500 students p.a.). Bas is also leading a national programme on talent development for the transition towards a circular economy.
