Projects temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 Virus 

17 March 2020
about

The first cases of the virus have been reported within the African countries we currently operate in (Kenya and Tanzania). 

Taking care of our planet also means taking care of each other. In order to limit the spreading of the COVID-19 virus and to support the health, well-being and safety of everyone involved in our projects, we temporarily put our regreening projects on hold until we know it’s secure  to proceed again.

Change of chair

23 November 2019
about

On October 8th, our chair Jenny Elissen has said farewell to our Supervisory Board.

“It is a wonderful moment to say goodbye after 8 years as chair of Justdiggit. From almost nothing and a lot of drive and enthusiasm, Justdiggit now is a firm international organization with an innovative business model and projects one can only dream of. I will stay connected and hope to keep playing a connecting role within the Advisory Board.”

We are very thankful for the years of dedication and her great commitment to Justdiggit. We are happy that she will remain involved through a role within the Advisory Board.

We did not only say goodbye to Jenny, but also said hello to our new chair of the Supervisory Board: Harold Knebel!

about

While the re-greening activities are taking place in Africa, we are working hard at our Amsterdam office to make it all possible. This is what the Justdiggit team does in really cool furnished, and how could it be otherwise, green rooms! From the busy traffic and tourists outside, you step into a green oasis. Designer Robin Sluijzer is responsible for the interior and therefore for a healthy working environment and extra work motivation for Justdiggit!

It’s time to bring him and his ‘free of charge’ efforts to your attention. –>
