JAN LEYSSENS

Co-founder of switchrs

Jan is a designer, entrepreneur and activist focussing on circular economy and social innovation. As a strategic business designer, Jan is convinced that we can only create a structural shift towards sustainability if we dare to look at the underlying logic of our systems.

Jan is constantly looking for the overlap between activism and entrepreneurship, technology and society.

Jan is actively involved in the circular economy since 2013.
He was one of the team-members of Plan C, a transition network for sustainable material usage, worked together with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, co-authored on a European report on the role of plastics in the circular economy, and is the founder of the design agency Regenerative Design and co-founder of strategic innovation agency switchrs.
