Impact Business Designers

Meet the 2020-2021 team

Hi There,

We are Bibi, Daan, Maarten and Julian and we are studying Global Marketing and Sales at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. Together we’re called: IBD!

We, the pioneers of this minor, will be challenged by the HRBS and the municipality of Rotterdam with a wicked problem. On this page we will post vlogs, updates and other sorts of content related to our project. So if you want to stay updated, please check this page regularly!

The Project

Creating protective sun clots for the municipality of Rotterdam to battle “extreme weather conditions” caused by climate change.

  • Usage of sustainable materials
  • Sustainable production methods
  • Local production
  • Multifunctional (used trough-out the year)
  • Stored locally

Our Goal

As IBD, we want to create sustainable, iconic, sun-protective canvasses for the municipality of Rotterdam that can be used throughout the whole year. Creating:

  • Environmental Impact
  • Social Impact
  • Local Impact

We want our sun-protective canvas to be “for Rotterdam by Rotterdam”. Using only local partners, (like social working places, other students and sewing shops) we believe that our project could contribute to the social cohesion in Rotterdam.
