Social enterprise The Punchy Pack, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, FMO, The Future Institute and Erasmus University, invite you to participate in the next Trendwatch Academy.

We believe that you, as a young professional with your talents and passion for sustainability, are part of the solution!
Together with experienced Futurist Justien Marseille, inspiring speakers and experts, we challenge you to see the world from a different view. In 4 workshops you will search for relevant signals, develop an innovative eye and create business opportunities related to your personal interests (passion) and your organization.
The program ends with a final event, where you and your team present findings to inspire seniors, sustainability and innovation managers and young professionals of various multinationals, NGO’s, government and knowledge institutions, and turn ideas into action.
Always had a dream to explore and/or work on a sustainable trend or cause? (without having to quit your job) This is your chance to act on it!
