Nov. 6, annual "Friends Lecture" at Museum Joure

Journalist and columnist Jantien de Boer talks about Landscape Pain


On November 6 next, Jantien de Boer, journalist and columnist for the Leeuwarder Courant will give the annual 'Friends' Lecture' in Museum Joure. This lecture is organized annually by the Friends of Museum Joure Association. The theme of the lecture is "Landscape Pain," the subject on which Jantien de Boer published a book in 2017 and which is still relevant today.

The lecture begins at 8 p.m. Admission is €5.00, including a cup of coffee or tea. Entrance is free for members of the Society (you can also become a member on the spot). Registration is possible until November 5 via info@vriendenvanmuseumjoure.nl or via 06 13882218 A.S. Heegsma/ 06 55121931 F. Tolsma.

Among other things, Jantien de Boer has a weekly column in the weekend supplement of the Leeuwarder Courant in which she describes a current topic or just an everyday event. In 2015, for example, she wrote columns and articles about citizens who are deeply concerned about the loss of flowers, plants, birds and insects and about cattle and arable farmers fighting for their livelihoods.

The book "Landscape Pain, about the future of our countryside," which she wrote as a follow-up in 2017, generated a lot of discussion at the time. Currently, it is still very topical! Nitrogen policy, CO2 emissions, and current agricultural policy are today topics of conversation in many living rooms and beyond! An attractive evening for the Friends of Museum Joure, which will hopefully generate lively interaction.
