A Blog with stories, opinions and ideas

Sustainable Lifestyle Initiative

Fascinated by our natural world and its cultural and social diversity, Vasco has started his personal Blog on which experiences, ideas and opinions somehow related to these fields are posted. Mostly from a semi-professional perspective.

As a business economist and environmentalist, he was active in various startups and small and medium-sized enterprises in management, commercial and project management roles. Mostly in Tech companies (funda.nl and comatch.com) and with services related to design and consulting. 

Since 2000 he has become increasingly interested in the many aspects of sustainability (both personal and business), and especially ecology. He also finds the social aspect important, as there is no ecological sustainability without equality.

In 2015, his first project, a consumer fair and conference (Sustainica) on sustainable lifestyle and innovation, was launched in collaboration with the NRW Forum in Düsseldorf. A range of different projects have since been initiated and supported by him, driving the challenge of creating impact. At least – that’s the ultimate goal.

In 2020 he (finally) made the switch to nature conservation, where he is currently doing a project for the Landesamt für Umwelt Brandenburg (Brandenburg State Office for the Environment)

In addition to his work Vasco is also committed to a number of charities, such as NABU (Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union) and the Global Greens. Feel free drop a line – vlbontje (at) mailbox (.) org – and enjoy reading this Blog.
