How it used to be and how it can get better now

In four lectures says Dorine van den Beukel how we once did our thing differently and now we can do better. For his book Nieuw Nijver, Van den Beukel went in search of the creators from Holland. With her shopping list of completely ordinary everyday things, she went out to see if we could make another sock, a pan or a piece of soap.

She dived into Dutch cultural and economic history and came up with surprising starting points for a new industry.
