How are we and our environment dealing with (the consequences of) the corona crisis?
The corona crisis has radically changed all of our lives. On Friday, December 11th, 500 Rotterdam youngsters between 13 and 23 years old will discuss the impact of corona and resilience during the Youth Top010. As chair I supervise the conversation among young people on the basis of Socratic dialogue.

Child development and traffic safety

Together with Veilig Verkeer Nederland I developed short video clips with tips and tricks for parents regarding traffic safety and traffic education, based on solid scientific findings. There are four video's aimed at parents with children aged 0-4, 4-8, 8-12 and 12-16. The video's are in Dutch.  

I really liked working on this project and learned so much of it. I think this is a great example of how we can bridge the gap between scientific findings and practical implications for everyday life!
