March 6th 2017

The Earth is warming up, global warming extensively alters the Earth’s climate system, including its lands, oceans, and ice. Join us this afternoon for a discussion on how we could regulate climate change as an infrastructure for our urban environment. The event is initiated by designer Jólan van der Wiel, who will present the first part of his Odd Environments series: Tropic City. The installation imagines Amsterdam as a tropical city and will be concluded with an expert meeting in which NNN director Koert van Mensvoort will present his vision on natural transformation. The event is free and starts at 14:00 at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
