The 2017 Junior Chamber International World Congress brought together young people, business, government, and communities in the Netherlands. This event, held in Amsterdam between November 6th to November 10th 2017, was an opportunity for people all over the world to attend for purposes of personal and professional development, and create positive local and international change.

Between 10:00 - 10:45 on November 7th, Ultimaker co-founder and chief technology officer Siert Wijnia spoke to a large audience, championing the impact of 3D printing on sustainability in his lecture: 3D Printing And The SDGS.

Siert’s speech lasted from covering the past, present, and future of additive manufacturing, and the role Ultimaker has played in this evolution.

Siert also spoke about Ultimaker has been redefining the world of 3D printing, through a commitment to reliability and accessibility, that has made them a favorite of businesses, educators, and professional users worldwide.

Following Siert’s speech, our service partner Distrinova arranged a visit to Makerversity for each speech attendee, where they had the opportunity to design and 3D print an object using an Ultimaker 3D printer.

Ultimaker sees an incredible opportunity to have a positive impact on the future of education and employment.

This creates sustainable development and has the potential to improve communities around the world.
