How ironic is it then that I too, am slowly becoming the target of the virus from Wuhan?!

What would I do if I was Rutte or Hoekstra? What would they do if they were Italian or Spanish ministers or a member of the European Commission?

The first week after our ‘intelligent lockdown’ I was in action mode, as if it were a sprint. A marathon, maybe. Now I think this isn’t even a marathon. It is a new road and nobody knows where it will lead to.

Climate change is a reality that is knocking on our front door. And although many people rise up asking for awareness, others want to take concrete and tangible action and have no clue how to do that. Kirsten van Reisen asked herself this question as well and found a way to contribute. She decided to work to restore a highly degraded piece of land in Spain as part of a team of volunteers at the first project of Ecosystem Restoration Camps (ERC). On May 29, she shared her experiences at the center of Initiatives of Change Netherlands together with ERCs director Pieter van der Gaag.

Wereldgeschiedenis van Nederland

More than a hundred scholars contributed to a recently published book with the rather intriguing title Wereldgeschiedenis van Nederland - A world history of the Netherlands. In over 750 pages they describe Dutch history, starting with the Neanderthal man 70.000 years ago.

One of the chapters in the book is about the Oxford Group. The author, Peter van Dam, a lecturer of Dutch history at the University of Amsterdam, says that “the history of the Oxford Group is not a footnote. It is essential for understanding The Netherlands in the twentieth century”. He writes about the success of an “undogmatic renewal movement”. It broke through existing barriers and connected people who would not normally meet.
