Desycling* Amsterdam 2006-2010

Between 2006 to 2010 we conceived and organized several Desycling projects in Amsterdam. The goal of these projects was to involve residents with the environmental and social issues within their neighborhood and to inspire them to take action. In addition, we invited a group of local residents to be trained as Desycle Coaches who were in charge of consolidating the results of the project.

All this happened throughout a series of brainstorms, workshops, projects and exhibitions where residents, shopkeepers and organizations in the neighborhood were involved.

*Desycling projects connect people, business and public institutions. Their social and environmental issues are addressed and they are motivated to take action by creating awareness in an inspiring, practical and pleasant way. Desycling stimulates creativity and encourages people to look differently at trash and waste issues and participaton.

‘The power of the Desycle concept is that it creates awareness in an- unawareness -way’
