Tractors blocking highways, angry farmers, Dutch flags that are turned upside down, the minister of agriculture resigns and Dutch society seems increasingly polarized around a common chemical compound called nitrogen. What is going on? Boerengroep has selected 8 articles plus a podcast and ordered them in themes, so you can get a full grasp of the situation!
Articles are all in Dutch, but can be read in English when automatic translation is used.
Farming; a change in culture, landscape and environmental impact over the last 70 years
Critical understanding of the farmer protests, the diversity of farm(er)s and rural despair
And now? Solutions, hope and struggles
Do you want to learn more about the topic? Let’s discuss it together to get a better grasp of the problem, the emotions and the possible solutions! Join the Boerengroep Break next Thursday (September 15th) 8PM at Cafe onder de Linden.
