Sacha van Tongeren

Sustainable development with a clear people value focus is what I believe in. I am an energetic, open-minded person who approaches challenges in a creative and investigative manner. I am a straightforward thinker with an eye for strategic partnerships and a passion for people and diversity. Precisely at a time when the notion of diversity is (again) under pressure, it is essential to seek cooperation across (national) borders and to encourage collaboration in unexpected compositions. In my professional life I try to be an intermediate between social and economic beliefs and creative powers. Throughout my career I have come to understand the value of knowledge in an open innovation context. I have developed a range of projects and programs connecting arts, technology and society.
