At the moment I am in the Netherlands and organize workshops, lectures and consultancies about urine diverting dry toilets, solar dryers, solar water heaters.

– Fedde Jorritsma –


In May 2011 I initiated ‘the turning wheel’.

The Turning Wheel aims to bridge local wisdom with global know-how by supporting intrinsic intentions for sustainable living.

With this inspiration I cycled from Bali to Europe. On my way I provided

356 workshop-hours with 600  participants (see list); build 21 appropriate technologies (see list); cycled 11329 km; and had 8 flat tires (see map). Family, friends, participants, organisations and people supported me with donations (see list)


Keep the wheel turning and make a donation here.
