Emile Aarts, and Hein Fleuren, Margriet Sitskoorn and Ton Wilthagen, initiators of The New Common movement: “It is now exactly one year since we launched The New Common and we are proud that our efforts have resulted in an international publication at Springer’s. Our core theme, how to move forward after the Covid-19 pandemic, continues to be highly relevant. That is why we are anticipating a follow-up that will explore a number of major and permanent changes triggered by the corona crisis.”
