My name is Aart Jan and nature and wildlife are my biggest passions. After some years of working as a psychologist in Human Resource Management I started Maikan after a trip to Asia. During this trip, I was completely overwhelmed about the enormous beauty of our planet. But also blown away about the enormous impact I saw that humans have on the planet through land use, diet, transport and polution.
After coming back to the Netherlands, I focused on the sustainability of our food pattern and system through working for The Dutch Weed Burger and through my partnership with Natascha Kooiman in our company Smaackmakers Experience, . What we eat effects nature in all sorts of heavy ways, in which the impact of animal proteins on the system is a problem that we really need to take steps into. After a few beautiful years, decided to (literally) show my passion for the planet through film and video concepts. To try and play a part in preservation of nature and especially the animals that live in it for future generations. By showing my own and other peoples love and passion for nature and the planet and what we can do to improve these.
I hope to enthuse and inspire others to change their daily behaviour and lower their impact on the planet. Check out my projects or have a look at the Maikan facebook page to see my work
