A. SUSTAINABLE INFORMATION: With 25 years experience in implementing financial and logistic systems, plus 10 years experience as a lecturer in project management, I have a strong desire to see people learn, and try to help them with this., B. SUSTAINABLE ENERGY, About 30 years ago I started to think about how we could be live with less. About ten years ago I founded my own company in bringing solar energy to the market. Slowly but steady I am working on trying to achieve this. Meanwhile I have a nice income from A., C. If I am not busy with A. of B. one of most nicest things to do is cycling. Preferably with my lovely wife. Which is and relaxing and good, since together we are older than 100 years. (Hard to believe for us, but it is true.) We cycle nice and easy, not too far away so we can have a nice drink of something in our garden. Our garden which we are slowly turning into a small paradise.
