Ever since my studies I have had a fascination with plastic. As a student, I lacked the knowledge about circular design at school. I would have gained a lot of knowledge if that subject had been taught to me at school.

I am convinced that it is important to teach students, especially at school, how important it is to design circularly. They are the generation that will make the difference. With my background as a designer from plastic waste, I can help students learn how to research material design, circular design, not only from plastic waste, but also in general. This can be done through freelance work as a teacher, project weeks, a lecture, a workshop. I like to think along with you!
