ECO Coin Award 2017 Nominations Open
August 29th 2017

Each year at NNN we search the globe for people and projects that have outstandingly contributed to make this planet a more sustainable place and honor them with our ECO coin Award. Previous winners of the award include Yoyo Yogasmana for his work in Indonesia sharing sustainable farming techniques and Dave Hakkens for his open source Precious Plastic recycling machines. This year we will "open source" our award, anyone can nominate a person, an organisation or even a community working on a sustainable project worthy of the ECO coin Award 2017.

So what are we looking for in a nominee exactly? We are searching for people working on projects that are - like the ECO coin - community driven, use nature and technology in an innovative way and that share their knowledge with others. It could be somebody working on a new sustainable energy source, a team developing a greener transportation system or even a community trying to clean our air and oceans. Read more about the ECO coin.

Have someone in mind? Let us know by sending an email to with the project details. And don't be shy, you can also nominate your own work!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
