Throughout the years Wart has been involved in multiple projects, feeding his interests and expertise in sustainability and the related planet’s challenges. He is able to organize and oversee activities on site, as well as participate in conceptual design discussions concerning sustainability, C2C® and Circular Economy issues.
He is working part time with Inspired Ambitions since 2011 as a technology researcher and consultant, involved in projects on sustainability in the built environment in Europe and China.
After some years of study at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, Wart became member of the team who built up ‘The Ocean Cleanup’ Foundation. After the initial set-up he became active as a field researcher within this volunteer’s organisation. In this function he co-developed new research instruments. He also supervised ocean expeditions and experiments on, amongst other places, the Azores, where the first full-scale research and experiments were conducted.
In 2016 he was secretary of the working group Circular Economy for the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam-The Hague (MRDH) to identify a feasible transition pathway together with Jeremy Rifkin and his team in the project called: ‘Roadmap Next Economy’.
In 2016 the foundation was laid to start up a consultancy business named ‘Beyond Sustainability’ where the aim is to create a renewable and inclusive marketplace in our society. Since end of 2016 he is involved as lead researcher in the ReGenVillages project, which will see its first self-sufficient village being built in Almere, The Netherlands early next year.

Inclusive productivity is based on a holistic vision ‘Beyond Sustainability’ in which all natural resources (energy, air, water, materials and top soil) are confronted with basic value areas: ecology, economy and equity.
In this vision, all natural resources are defined to have a positive footprint. Too often social aspects are subordinated to the ecological and economical ones. The value of this social proposition is proven to be getting more important in obtaining a renewable, resilient, resource based and inclusive society. The (re)production of all natural resources is enabled through inclusiveness; the future of renewable productivity is necessarily inclusive.
