How can we manage our waste smarter and more sustainable, so that we can take a step toward becoming the most sustainable premier camping resort in the Netherlands? 

The objective

With Impact Nation, we research products, services and models for the purpose of adaptation / transition to more sustainable business operations, by means of prevention of climate damage and guidance on legislation. For this challenge we are looking for solutions that can help a camping resort become more sustainable.
