Refugees, the consequences of our actions

Posted on September 15, 2015 at 11:30 0 Comments

I have no words I can use in this blog post that even begin to describe the frustration I feel while listening to the politicians debating what to do with refugees. If I had to run from harm, or for any other reason, with my children I hope I will meet people with kindness in their heart.


I had doubts whether I should write about this topic. I don’t know if this is the place for it, if my opinion matters and if it will do anyone any good. I obviously don’t know all the facts…

It’s March. I’m in Barcelona. March is a good time to be in Barcelona. It’s raining in Amsterdam, but not here. It’s almost 9.30 in the morning and the sun is strong and warm. I wonder if there’s a bad time to be in Barcelona? Probably not.


But before reading any further, please turn on the soundtrack for this article

Hi Arne,
Good to be part of the community :)
I was sent info about your 3 day workshop in October which looks amazing but I simply can't make it (kids, work etc...) so, wondering if you have any plans for similar workshops in the UK?
Really hope so, Sarah

Hi Arne, thanks for your email! 

It would be great if you could help me spread the word. We need more design thinkers to join us :)

Btw, if you need my help, please email me. I will be more than happy to help you.

Ja fijn hoor wanneer een organisatie een professionele fotograaf inhuurt om een profiel foto te maken...

Hallo Arne, zeker een goed idee. Sprak vandaag met Panton, een industrial designers club uit Deventer die alleen maar voor de zorg ontwerpen. Ook bezig met SDT. Ken jij ze?

Vandaag een door Ingeborg ontwikkeld model besproken wat zorginnovaties kan ondersteunen. 

Zodra ik in 020 buurt kom meld ik me voor bijpraat sessie... ;-) 

Anders bij Novio Tech Campus? 

We spreken elkaar!

Hoi Arne,

Vind dit ook echt een super vinding, jullie Design Thinkers creation.

Leuk om er in mee te gaan.

Hoe gaat het met de kleine man en kleine vrouw en jou vrouw. haha

Hoop dat alles goed gaat bij jullie.
