Egbert Mulder studied Social Sciences in Groningen, the Netherlands, and Sydney, Australia, and is a serial entrepreneur and founder of several companies in the fields of marketing, leisure, and leadership. Egbert is an author and consultant in the field of sustainability and leadership and as a keynote speaker, he regularly appears worldwide at conferences on sustainable leadership and circular and regenerative economy.

In 2014 Egbert started CIRCULAR LEADERSHIP to support leaders and organizations in creating a liveable and sustainable future. The VR Workshop EARTH FROM SPACE ® is a unique, innovative and effective way to make a powerful contribution to accelerating system change towards a circular and regenerative economy through the so-called Overview Effect. The Overview Effect is what astronauts experience when they look at the Earth from Space and that is the reason that many astronauts become eco activists.
