Focus: Integrating the circular and energy transition
As a student, Laetitia Stuijt interned with the Amsterdam Economic Board’s strategy team in 2020. Based on that knowledge, she wrote her thesis on the transition to a circular economy in Amsterdam. Laetitia also pursued a master’s degree in International Affairs in Berlin, where she focused on sustainability.
Now she joined the Leads and Strategy team as a project consultant. She works on integrating the circular and energy transition, among other things. Such as through circular solar panels and practical experimentation with post-growth thinking.
With her background in history and documentary filmmaking, Laetitia knows the importance of storytelling. Especially in the necessary transitions, it is important to get everyone involved through inspiring stories.
“My grandfather used to say, ‘it must be done, so it can be done’ – a very pragmatic way of looking at transitions. We have to change to save ourselves and the planet. And even though we may not yet know how – it can be done!”
