Festival season in the Netherlands

The time has been changed, days are longer, the sun is brighter and the temperature is on the rise. Spring is here and with summer just around the corner, people’s moods and behavior take more and more a positive turn. Even our consuming behavior changes as the weather allows and sometimes demands an occasional ice cream or an outdoor barbecue with a freezing beer. An industry that is technically cyclical to the movement of the seasons is the festival industry. It is no surprise that more festivals are organized around this period. However, the numbers in the Netherlands are astonishing as this is a rapidly growing industry that pulls more and more people both on a national and international level every year.

Mechanization and automation of labor and why you should be afraid!

“ Build that wall! Build that wall!” I guess we all know where those words come from. The populist rhetoric that has been used by many political players, including the don himself has been characterized by a rising hatred towards immigration and foreign trade among others. People believe that the rising unemployment and stagnating wages might be due to foreigners taking their jobs. However, the reality might be different, and thus I’ll be trying to bring forth an alternative explanation in this article.

Climate change and the refugee crisis may be linked

It is a topic barely discussed during campaigns and debates for the Dutch elections: climate change. And more precisely, how to limit global warming and its consequences. A topic that was hotly debated, however, was the refugee crisis. In this article, I will discuss why climate change and the refugee crisis may be linked and urge for a greener society.

My internship at Philips

‘What do you want to do after school?’ This is a question they start asking you when you are very little. The answer used to be something like a firefighter, princess, professional football player, astronaut etc. But the older you get, the more serious they expect your answer to be. I have found that this is one of the most difficult questions to answer. To help solve the problem of not knowing what to do (and I’ll admit, to postpone my decision for a year), I decided to do an internship.

Learning from other’s experiences- an interview with Dimitra Karmi

In my first article, I started a train of thought about working in the Netherlands as an international student. First of all, I wanted to look at all the positive aspects and advantages of doing this. After all, your attitude towards a particular matter can sometimes be a strong factor of success. This train, however, will not keep going only with good attitude. This article brings a bit more of substance and specifically, some experience to the story.
