We are committed to accelerate and strengthen the impact-driven seaweed industry. This is something we cannot do by ourselves. Moreover: we don’t do it for ourselves. We do this because we are committed to create something a strong and healthy Dutch blue-economy, that will contribute to climate change solutions for many generations to come. How? By building an inclusive community for powerful collaborations throughout the value-chain of seaweed. This way we aim to stimulate open innovation and accelerate positive developments for each and everyone involved. For a radical and powerful impact.
In other words: if the seaweed sector is successful, we’re doing our job right.
