Thin Ice: opening of academic year


The opening of the academic year at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focused on the question ‘Thin ice! What can science do to help?’, and explored what the arts can teach the sciences in the case of climate change – a topic we also explored last year at the Environmental Humanities Center. The question was addressed by the President of the Executive Board Jaap Winter, climate journalist and film maker Bernice Nootenboom, and the new Writer in Residence Bas Heijne.

A recording of the event is to be found on the university website.
