If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Would you rather be able to run at 200 km/h, or fly at 20 km/h?

Art for a sustainable age
Sustainability. A term that has shaken off any buzzword-like connotations to become a rallying cry for the modern era. It categorizes a movement that is still taking shape, one that's seen as the answer to the unfolding situation that is the climate crisis. Industries, individuals, and initiatives are defined by how sustainable they are, from art to automotive. Especially when they come together.
We Harvest Wind: Thijs Biersteker drives change through art
Art communicates. It resonates with us all in a way that few of us can fully articulate. The medium doesn't matter either. Whether sculpture or song, acrylics or alabaster, art provokes a reaction. As such, it's an incredibly powerful way to deliver a message, directly accessing the audience's emotions and creating a connection. Which is exactly why Thijs Biersteker does what he does.
