Femke Groothuis Founder and CEO, Wavemaker

In 2009 she initiated The Ex’tax Project, continuing the legacy of the founder of Ex''tent, the late Eckart Wintzen. Ex’tax is the proposal to shift taxation from labour to natural resource use. This creates incentives to save resources, empowering the circular economy. Lower taxes on labour will make it possible to tap into the abundance of capacities of people. The Ex''tax Project was founded to create a powerful coalition in favour of getting the best out of people rather than nature. Femke is a political scientist specialized in international relations and environment. She has lived, worked and studied in the Netherlands, Italy, Kenya, Vietnam, England and New Zealand.
