From the celebration booklet:
We celebrate 13 years of Except Integrated Sustainability. We’re thrilled to see that in these years we’ve become a collective of remarkable individuals dedicated to building the foundations of a sustainable society. We are thankful for every one of those years, and look forward with hope and the knowledge that by standing together we will achieve a better world for all.
If Except had a voice of its own, it would be grateful to all who are and have been part of Except for their contribution. Together, we made Except into what it is today.
This book records the things we are grateful about, our greatest sources of joy, passion and hope throughout the years. One item for each year. We love to give this to you and hope they'll inspire and make you think, as they have us.
Thank you for 13 years of magic,
Michiel van der Vight
