about

Urban Connectors presents a people driven approach to innovation in an urbanizing world with social boundaries and finite resources. 

We believe that fair and resilient societies and economies emerge in places where people are able to truly connect, engage and act on local level. By developing open processes and local settings for collective learning, we enable people and organisations to build on each others insights and resources so that they can act together.

Urban Connectors was founded by Vera de Jong. Being educated in both arts and economics Vera got known for her cross disciplinary people driven approach to innovation. This includes bringing together researchers,  citizens, educators, artists, digital scientists and young people in collaborative innovation projects.

Over the years Urban Connectors transformed into an open collective of like minded people with great sense of relevance, creativity and responsibility.
