How your neighbourhood determines your opportunities

    Press/Media: OtherProfessional

    Description

    ‘This crisis is not too bad’, thought Sander van Lanen back in 2009, while working as an intern at Boomerang. He didn’t realize how bad it was until 2011, when he spoke to protesters on Syntagma Square in Athens. ‘That was the moment when I became interested in the effects of a crisis on various places and various people.’ By now, Van Lanen recognizes the problems of disadvantaged neighbourhoods, but also their strengths.
