Society is changing. Direct social and local connections are getting less strong whilst global networks are getting people in touch with people and companies from all around the world! Solidarity is leaving the mind-set of people, and sustainability is slowly moving towards the background as well. The interesting coloration between the two will be explained by Paul Hendriksen during the WEPtalks in January. Paul, chairman of the Transition Towns network in the Netherlands, has great knowledge on the way sustainability is fused in the social connections people have with one another. He wil explain this by the hand of Transition Towns principles. Paul is specialised on improving and accelerating these social and sustainable movements on local scale which he applies in his work for 'Stroomversnellers' as well.

These WEPtalks will consists of two sessions. The second session, taking place on the 18th of januari, will go more into depth into strengthening sustainable networks of which the Green Active Network in Wageningen is a great example.
