I am honoured to be named one of the “150 Women Who Shake the World” by Newsweek. Within the list of 150 Fearless Women List, women have been honored for making their voices heard. As stated by Newsweek, “Whenever a woman or girl gains control of her destiny, the local standard of living goes up and the values of human rights spread. So this year, and every year, Newsweek has honored local heroes, and the growing network of powerful women who support their efforts.”
Aboute me they wrote:
Art historian turned curator turned environmental trendsetter, Renny Ramakers has put a different kind of green conscience into design with UP, the Dutch innovator’s latest venture. Initiated by Droog, a firm she cofounded that took the design world by storm, UP is a collaborative effort among companies to cut down on waste by using surplus materials to create new goods. The movement’s many partners have created a rapidly growing line of chic “leftover” products from dead-stock items repurposed in inventive ways.
Thank you Newsweek!
