At the end of this month, on November 30th, the first BlueWorxx partner meet up will take place in the Netherlands. The goals of the afternoon will be to get acquainted with the other BlueWorxx partners and the creation of smart combinations to bring about integrated innovation. With these innovations we can jointly provide solutions for the cities of the future.
The CEO of World of Walas, Gerben van Straaten, will share his vision on the future of cities, and how BlueWorxx is critical to bringing about the exponential improvements cities require. In addition, there will be an opportunity for up to 5 partners to present their company and innovations. Finally, we’ll start in (sub) groups with concrete innovations for resilient cities.

On October 18, our BlueWorxx partner Wellsun revealed her first project: The Lumiduct works in a glass façade near Rotterdam. Wellsun optimizes the use of sunlight and improves the energy self-sufficiency of buildings. The Lumiduct enables a full glass façade to generate more energy than conventional solar panels and at the same time creates a perfect indoor building climate.
Biodiversity is decreasing with 75%. Time to take action to stop this trend.
Our partner NL Greenlabel organised a call to action for the Dutch Government. The action, called ‘Code red for nature’, was initiated after new research revealed the biodiversity is drastically decreasing. Almost 28.000 Dutch people and about 40 organisations joined the call.
On Wednesday, November 29th, World of Walas, BlueWorxx’s parent company, will be presenting at the Building Show Toronto 2018.
