We are Andries & Laura, the team behind Vojaĝi Kune. Vojaĝi Kune means ‘travelling together’ and comes from Esperanto. We have been living in Sweden since December 2021 and use the name Vojaĝi Kune for our company. We guide organisations and their employees in their journey towards circular business operations that make an impact. Hence our slogan ‘from the idea to the top’. We offer tailor-made programs from a business perspective and are focused on the organisation and its external environment.
