Thanks for visiting my site!

I use this site to blog about my work, collect the articles I write and collect things that inspire me. To give you an overview of what I’ve been doing over the last few years, I’ve selected a number of (blog)posts. Most have been posted on Open for Change or on NABUUR before.

I have a background in IT & management. I started my carreer at Rabobank. I liked my job, but found out I was looking for more meaning in my work. I then joined NABUUR,  the online platform for international development, where I set up online community management. Nowadays, NABUUR is a fully volunteer-run platform, of which I am the director.

In 2009, together with 1%Club, Akvo, TexttoChange, Rolf Kleef and others, I founded Open for Change – the international network for open development.

I am passionate about the use of new technology for good causes.

I hope you enjoy reading what’s here. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please do get in touch via the contact form below, or on Twitter (@pelleaardema).
