14 May Define The New Normal- Day 14/31:
I spent the month of April asking a diverse group of my neighbours in Utrecht the following question. I will release their responses once per day for the rest of the month.
“As we collectively redefine the new ‘normal’ and rebuild, what would you like to see as the primary institutional change in society?”
“Recognise that higher education and work doesn’t always have to be on site and can be done from home. For example, work or study from home as normal 2 or even 3 days of the week, when possible. By doing this, we will reduce our consumption of oil due to less travel. However, we shouldn’t just use less oil, we should continue to search for renewable sources and other technologies to get us through this and change the world for the better. Rather than temporary shit solutions.”
