Elzewieke Borger wiser from Utopia?
Elzewieke Borger has got enough spirits when she went into the Utopia house of SBS. But after a few weeks she had already run out the gate and into the real world . The viewers of the program have been able to follow her adventures and form an opinion .
But was her own experience?
Utopia , a group of fifteen different people , the pioneers of our time, say their current life goodbye . One year they build a completely new life, a new community, and they start with almost nothing ! All they have is a bare shed on a rough piece of land, a modest livestock, a connection to water and electricity, one phone and a sum of money in cash to build their habitat and the first months to survive.
A warm action for a ice rink
According to the shareholder Jan Smit (chairman at Heracles Almelo) the Ice rink the Bonte Wever Assen can close next year. There is no money to renovate the complex and therefore there are literally thousands of skaters on ice. A group of concerned skaters have now put up a campaign to preserve the Asser rink. The aim is to get as many people on the move to get the provincial and municipal politics so far to get the necessary money on the table. The money is for renovation or even a new construction.
