The packaging as a package of happiness

10 February 2020

Column Maarten Wolsing: Imagine

10 February 2020

Holland, where's the direction?

In N70, the conservation year 1970, the information on nitrogen that we are talking about now was already known. See the reports on the ageing of the Strabrechtse Heide and De Peel from 1968/1970. How weird that 'we' now...

I see what you don't see...

How do I kill my building?

Nutri-Score, yes or no? The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has not yet decided, the FNLI awaits the outcome of the government investigation before agreeing to a food choice logo, the Consumers' Association is in f...

Smart, smart, smart

07 October 2019

'Smart'; it may sound future-oriented and trendy, but it's a dragon with many faces. We are far from overseeing the consequences.  You can't transform digitally in one day, but it goes quickly. At breakneck speed...

Smart Conversation

07 October 2019

Sometimes I think, "I should have learned a profession". A profession that can be automated. So I can deal with the big (creative) issues and leave the daily routine to a robot. I love to talk to business relations, to l...

Alternative

Sometimes you just have to get out of the rat race of agendas, the dictatorship of the clock, the everyday humdrum. My basic ingredients for a fine holiday are simple: a tent a sleeping bag, a sleeping mat. Away from the...

Time and distance

To me, holidays are taking time to sit down and reflect. At such a moment when I am not considering past or future, at least not further than our meal tonight, my son asks me: ‘Why do the beans we eat come all the way fr...

Heroin or saffron: who wins?
