Street photography

BY GORDON MEULEMAN
@ VOL 23 ON APR 18, 2018

Gordon Meuleman finds his work on the streets. Always active and unobtrusively alert, Gordon searches for the reasons of his fascination with humans.
The interactions, reactions and current zeitgeist, but also the traces we humans leave behind. His photographs suggest stories to the viewer, but will rarely reveal the real story completely. The interpretation of the viewer is as important in Gordon's work as the suggestions of stories in the same work.

Circular economy

BY ASTRID MEIER
@ VOL 23 ON APR 18, 2018

Green Change moves transition towards a circular economy. Because we want a social and just society. Because our earth has an ecological maximum, which we already have reached some time ago. Because we can no longer wait for the government. Because we can achieve much more by working together in a bottom up setting. Because there are many partners that do not wish to wait any longer. Because it can. Not in the future in an ideal country but here and now in the Netherlands. Do you want to know how? Astrid Meier explains it all.
