Green Film Making made a report for the City of Amsterdam about the RUMORE local stakeholder meeting that took place on October 11th at the Freedom Lab. The local stakeholder group took next steps on advancing the future topic of a circular economy. Stakeholders include: GRO Holland (produces oyster mushrooms on coffee grounds and makes vegetable, protein-rich products from them), The Dutch Weed Burger (products made from seaweed), GrowX (self-sufficient vertical farm: sprouts, herbs and lettuce, produced in a high-rise building and Amsterdam Metropolitan Solutions (conducts research into the optimal reuse of organic waste streams).

In the field of the circular economy, the City of Amsterdam sees particular opportunities in redesigning the organic residual waste chains in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (MRA). The City is therefore participating in the European RUMORE project (Rural-Urban partnerships MOtivating Regional Economies), which is aimed at strengthening, inspiring and helping out start-up, innovative SMEs in the organic residual flow and agrifood sector.

Report was made by Jurriaan Vriezen and Els Rientjes.
