On 9 October 2019, the Environmental Humanities Center left a very rainy Amsterdam behind for a visit to Zeeland. More precisely, our bus drove to COVRA, the one nuclear waste management facility of the Netherlands. After the many nuclear events previously hosted by the EHC, my colleague Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou (PhD candidate at the EHESS in Paris and currently a visiting scholar at the VU) and I wondered what it would be like to visit a waste facility and to see in practice what we’ve been discussing for so long. Luckily for us, the EHC was very supportive of our quandaries, and COVRA is very open to visitors, and thus we and eighteen other interested attendants went on our way.
