    Tiemen ter Hoeven · Founder & CEO of Roetz · Manufacturer of Circular Bicycles & e-Bikes (Highlights)

    “I think the next crisis is going to be a materials crisis. The whole point of moving from a zero-sum game–like who makes the best cheapest product at the lowest price and can find lowest labor somewhere around the world so someone can be happy with a new laundry machine and buy another one in five years–that’s not going to work for us.”
    Tiemen ter Hoeven is founder and CEO of Roetz, a manufacturer of circular bicycles and e-bikes. In the Netherlands alone, about 1 million bicycles are discarded every year - whilst many parts can still be used perfectly well. In the Roetz Fair Factory, the parts are cleaned, repaired, and reassembled into new bicycles by people with poor job prospects. Roetz’ mission is to bring circular design and innovation to the bike industry and beyond

    Master Shi Heng Yi · 35th Generation of Shaolin Masters · Headmaster of the Shaolin Temple Europe (Highlights)

    “You and me talking right now, the people who are listening right now, in a hundred years none of us will be here on this earth anymore. When it comes to the individual, it’s always just a question of time until you will be forgotten and this is why it is so important that there is something in our tradition we call “because it’s not the individual, it cannot be lost”. This is when you are investing a part of your lifetime in trying to add something to the spirit, what exists in this world. Sometimes you call it the zeitgeist. Sometimes you call it the consciousness of our earth. It means always ask yourself how can you, with the way you think, with the work that you do, with the way you behave, with the actions that you do–how can you add a piece of spirit? How can you contribute to the spirit that is going to remain even after after your individual death?”
    For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practicing the interaction between mind and body. His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this knowledge with physical exercises and to practice Martial art –Kung Fu and Qi Gong. He has an academic background but he prefers to live at the Shaolin Temple Europe, Monastery located in Otterberg, Germany. Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and he personifies sustainable development and spreading Shaolin culture and philosophy.
