NNN Is Hiring: Managing Director

We are looking for a Managing Director (Dutch speaker) for our studio in Amsterdam. You will join an international network and will explore with us a future in which nature and technology are fusing. In a landscape of traditional nature organizations, we are the only group that approaches the concept of nature in a new way. Virtual worlds, printed food, living cities, wild robots; we’re so surrounded by technology that it’s becoming our next nature. How not to lose sight of the human factor? Preserving nature is of great importance, but we must also dare to look ahead. Do you agree? Then you might consider working with us! (Robots need not apply). Applications close on March 31, more info about the job.
