Tijmen grew up in a small village, but likes to dream big. In his analyses for Futureproof, he wants to focus on the biggest challenges of our time: climate change and social inequality.
With an education in Economic Policy and Management of Innovation, he has a broad perspective on these challenges. According to him, policy makers can initiate sustainable social change by building on the pioneering work of entrepreneurs.
After living in Italy for a while, he tries to continue that lifestyle in the Netherlands as much as possible: living outdoors when possible and eating and drinking together with the people around you. Despite those big dreams for the future, he enjoys living in the now all the more.
