NBC made a short documentary about Amsterdam’s hidden community of refugee squatters. Many refugees that have been denied a status are illegal in this country and they therefore do not have the right for housing. This documentary visits several refugees and interviewed them. I was asked to elaborate on the history of Amsterdam concerning squatting.
The American television channel, CBS Sunday morning, visited the Netherlands to learn about how we deal with the rising sea levels. They interviewed me about my book Sweet & Salt.
Windmills are more than just a traditional part of the Dutch landscape; they have played a key role in the war Holland has waged against the sea for centuries. Today the Dutch are using ever-more innovative methods to combat rising sea levels, strategies that may also benefit other nations confronting the effects of climate change.
