During our short stay in Milan we visited Venti Sostenibili, an organisation that brings together social enterprises in and around Milan. At The Milano HUB, a shared space for startups and homebase of Venti Sostenibili, we discussed two of their fruitful projects and also what’s needed to move to a circular economy.
During our trip to Milan, we made use of the opportunity to visit the World Expo in Milan and to check out their level of circularity! Our visit started with Pavillion Zero, which was about the global food challenges we are facing.
Nudge Explorers Circular Cities proudly presents the 5 winners of the Nudge Leadership Challenge 2014. The 5 Dutch Young Leaders in Sustainability will be touring Europe by train to investigate and promote the necessity and feasibility of a circular economy.

We invite each visitor of the Nudge Sustainability Hub to send us content related to one of the topics. In this way you can share innovative news and insights coming from your neighbourhood, organisation, network, city, country or continent with our growing global community and anyone else who finds us on the internet. This is our invitation to you to give our new platform a firm nudge!
I will be the Nudge ambassador for Milan, Italy during the Nudges Explores Circular Cities Tour. Milan is the city of fashion and design, but not too long from now, it will be the city of food during the World Expo 2015.
