I’m Tim van der Weide, welcome to my website. My mission is to reconnect people and nature, one place at a time. So we can live in pollution free and green neighborhoods. I work as a sustainability manager in the built environment, and study a parttime BSc in Landscape Design.
This site is still work in progress. Most of my posts will explore mindful approaches to landscapes, mysticism and cycling. This site also includes parts of my portfolio. I produce a very irregular newsletter to which you can subscribe. If you are looking for interesting sources, this is a list of favorite links. You can find me on Twitter.
The past 10 years I’ve spent reviewing companies on environmental and social matters (ESG), and mentored banks and investors how to make these part of normal business. In 2007, I lived six months in a monastery in the misty hills of Northern California. From 2010 to 2014, I was a deputy city council member in Amersfoort. In 2014, I co-founded a road cycling store, Meesterknecht, in Amsterdam.
