Treemendo is founded by a group of friends: Joris Olde Rikkert & Charlotte Hopmans, with the help of Sven van Aspert, Marijn van Asseldonk, & Nikki Kluskens.
Joris Olde Rikkert
As a climate physicist and designer, I am aware of the destructive effects of climate change, and how disconnected from nature people feel. By founding Treemendo we can fight both.
Feeling connected to nature is crucial to our wellbeing and a sustainable future. As an international connector & natural go getter I translate my passion for nature into concrete results to create positive climate impact with Treemendo.
The Nature Network
Treemendo is part of a non-profit foundation. We envision that we will develop more impact organisations and projects like Treemendo, that is why we have called the foundation ‘The Nature Network’. The Nature Network foundation is the legal umbrella of Treemendo, and of future projects. Read more on the foundation: www.thenaturenetwork.nl
The board of our foundation
Sustainable development and policy expert focused on systematic change and participation. Nikki is the chair of the foundation.
Sven van Aspert
Sven is a strategist and the creation of value, which is not only measured in money, is what gives him energy each day. Sven is the foundation’s treasurer.
Marijn van Asseldonk
Marijn is a passionate ecologist with incredible knowledge on the interaction between society and ecology. Marijn is the foundation’s secretary.
In everything we do, our values and impact always come first.
For us transparency and trust are essential to create good relationships with our community, companies and the environment. We believe in the power of collaboration and sharing. We are proud of what we do and love to share it with others.
We empower people to contribute to restoring nature, because we believe everyone can have a positive impact. We aim to democratise the management of nature, and invite anyone to join. The more people care, the better.
We grow sustainable relationships between people and forests. It is in the interest of all life on earth to improve and unite humans in a better way with nature. In the modern, urbanised and industrialised context we need new ways to connect people to nature.
We think, design, and act for longevity and sustainability. We believe sustainability and longevity in the end means the ability to adapt and be dynamic as an organisation. To be able to adapt in the right way we closely measure and analyse our impact.
