I was sick last week. Luckily this gave me the opportunity to watch a number of episodes of ‘De wereld draait door’. A discussion between Roos Schlikker and the philosopher Désanne van Brederode caught my imagination. It was about the public reaction to the disappearance of Ruben and Julian. Searches were organized and the news was a trending topic in social media. Everyone was talking about it. It appeared as though the whole of the Netherlands had been brought into action. Was this an exception?

Worldpartners’ office is in the same building as Euro-Com International. Euro-Com International has made the space available as a gift.
