Erlijn van Genuchten, Ph.D. is doing a 365 Sustainable Decisions Challenge since August 2019, which involves making another sustainable decision every day over the course of a year.
Her motto: “A better world starts with yourself”.
She shares how she changes her daily habits, her experiences and lessons learned, inspiring and making it easy for others to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle too (www.SustainableDecisions.eu or www.Twitter.com/ErlijnG). With her project, she has already inspired thousands of people from all around the world. And she is very eager to keep on going to leave a huge, positive footprint in this world.
