Sometimes people ask me who my examples are in life. Besides the obvious answers, such as my parents, who I indeed find inspiring, I find this a challenging question. It is not that I am never impressed by people, on the contrary I see many passionate people working on themes that matter. I think I am just horrible at remembering exactly who did what, when and where. This page is an attempt to solve that by creating an overview of people and initiatives that have in some way inspired me. So that from now on, if people ask me who inspires me, I can open this page and tell them all about it.
