Bookdesigner Anne-Marie Geurink talks about a fairytale - A true story book... in which the economy is represented as a fairytale. "Once upon a time there was a creature who decided to make circles. Circles that everybody wants. The circles turn out to be a hugh succes. Everybody want’s the circles. And they end up with a world completely build out of circles."

Artist Anook Cleonne is talking about the benefits of not knowing where to go: "Today it is cool to be confident. To have a firm idea of where one is going. Isn't that what the world expects from us too? Getting lost is so very inefficient. But let's celebrate the art of getting lost".
In her project 'The Blue Hour' ( Het Blauwe Uur) artist Anook Cléonne invites people to share their earthshaking altering views with her, views she later transforms into very large (and delicate) drawings. Since graduating with honors from the Amsterdam Rietveld Academy and taking up residency at the internationally renowned Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in the same city, one can find Anook's work in museums as well as many corporate and private collections.
We are living in a world flooded with images, facts and figures. Where opinions are often mistaken for facts. How does one make sense of it all, where to start, how to look? Can we trust our eyes when our heads are in the way most of the time, messing things up?
How do we manage to keep up with that world? And can art seriously still make a difference in al of this? What would happen if we allow ourselves not to know… to travel without a map?https://youtu.be/j8WfJlGxd0M

Erik van Cuyk talks about his challenge for municipalities with onehundred households, onehundred days, living a 100% with zero waste: "Don’t tell people what to do, what to think and how to behave, but we launch it as a game, and give everyone responsibility. Make it a challenge."

In the past years Erik did many different things. He has a degree in international law; owned an advertising agency; played in a rock band and traveled through Europe and Asia.

Nowadays he combines these experiences in his work as a photographer and as a communication expert. Last year Erik and his team won an international communication Award with project 100-100-100, a new effective method to change behavior of the public in an honest way.

"I think there is too much manipulation in the way governments and companies communicate. In the end it leads to a big gap instead of commitment and trust. If you treat one like a fool you will get a fool. Thats why I always try to show the real things and reveal manipulation."

Keywords for Erik are: courage, honesty, open-minded and creativity. https://youtu.be/Bzvnc1ZZqyw

The Deaf communication specialist Eva Westerhof talks about inclusion by imagination: "We can fly through space. We can walk on the moon. But we cannot make or own world accessible? Accessibility does not affect a few people. It involves billions of people. It affects everyone. Sooner or later. Take accessibility in your mind with everything you do. Make sure that everyone can participate.With imagination. We can fly through space. We can walk on the moon. Let’s go on. We can make our world accessible too."

Eva Westerhoff is a disability rights advocate, accessibility consultant and trainer for inclusive information, communication and technology who happens to be Deaf.

She currently works on the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in the Netherlands and has a passion for digital inclusion.

She believes that by communicating with diversity and accessibility in mind it is possible to reach out to more people, including those with different abilities.

Her life motto: “I don’t have a disability; society imposes a disability upon me.”
