Abundanism = Abundance 4 ALL
We are Desiree Driesenaar & Mike Harps
"Stories & Education Are Gold Dust"
Our clients are universities, and media businesses such as newspapers, magazines, Netflix, and TV channels. We write scripts for filmmakers and design modern museum expositions with digital twins and VR. Always in partnership with others.
We educate and write transition methods for CSR & ESG consultants, start-ups, established entrepreneurs & world leaders.
This Is How We Started
In 2018, Mike and I became a couple in life and work. We are nomads. Staying with our (affiliated) local projects for months.
I'm the face of Abundanism and the Syntropocene. The post-industrial era after the industrial Anthropocene.
Together, we give you 1000+ solutions. And help you choose. Complexity is really not complicated if you know a little bit of science and biology, and are able to translate it to conscience & common sense.
- Désirée Driesenaar
I'm a published science writer and transformer of businesses, governments, and societies. I write about the Syntropocene. The post-industrial PLUS era after the Anthropocene. When biological, physical, and virtual elements are combined in new, healthy solutions for cities, and villages.
Abundance 4 ALL. Completely inclusive of all humans, and other complex-flow-system. Species, rivers, seas, and mountain ranges.
My work is
Planet, People, Profit & Prosperity.
If you want some old-world credibility - I'm an official expert in Blue Economy and Biomimicry. Systemic design education. I've been a business unit manager and consultant in technology companies. Now I advise and co-found start-ups. And advise the EU Commission.
I'm a published science writer in the languages English and Dutch. Non-fiction. And science fiction since 1991.
And I am just me. Radical, friendly me. Out there on social media. Strongly connected to Gaia & Merlin. Growing my own wings & supporting young leaders to do the same.
Warm regards, Desiree
In 2012, my life clicked together on a mountain in Nepal. My professional work is in transport & logistics. Back in the Netherlands, I became a pioneer in a regenerative Dutch rural project. Peppelhof by Stichting Phien. We built food forests on 13ha of farm and off-grid, self-sustaining houses. Building Paradise.
A documentary about our Peppelhof lives and work was shown on national TV in 2021. Now, I’m on the road again with Désirée. Traveling to regenerative projects that can use our support. We create regional cluster economies in the Syntropocene.
I contribute my energy, timing, and experience of travel, cultures, and diverse backgrounds. ALL our grandchildren will benefit.
Warm regards, Mike Harps
