Please tell us what you do in a few lines?
BEES coop is the first consumers’ cooperative in Brussels and it will be a real alternative to giant food retailers for people who care about sustainability, food quality, prices and social integration.

In fact, BEES coop will be more than a simple supermarket. We wish to broader the access to good quality products trough an innovative model of management, by creating short supply chains and making our shop a living place where all Brussels citizens could meet up and exchange. For BEES coop, commercial activity is one of the three pillars of the project: supporting local economy and organic products, integrating citizens and promoting another way of living together.

According to you, what does it take to be a Changemaker?
Courage, innovation, networking, team, spirit of observation and analysis, capacity to free creativity

What is the Change you would like to see happen in today’s world?
The big Change we want to see is a real transition of our economic system to a environment friendly system. We are part of the organisations who support the slogan “Change the System not the Planet”.

Please tell us what you do in a few lines?
Poseco, center for a positive economy, was created to stimulate entrepreneurs to put their societal values at the center of their economic activities. The aim is to support the individual commitments of the market participants so that their actions, products and services are directly beneficial to the collective.

According to you, what does it take to be a Changemaker?
A Changemaker is a utopian at the root which takes into account economic realities to carry out his idea. This is a person who believes in humanity because he knows that on its own, he won’t succeed.

What is the Change you would like to see happen in today’s world?
I would like to see a world where it’s possible to combine economic viability and strong societal impact, through socially innovative products and services. All based on deep and sincere human individual values.
