We are two academics working in The Netherlands willing to move beyond the comfort zone of scholarly writing. We realised that scientific work has produced a large amount of knowledge on the social, economic and ecological condition of our planet that too often remains undercover in the maze of academic journals. We asked ourself what could be necessary to do in order to solve those problems that academics have well explained and described. As many, we started to act, to join forces with others, to campaign and to share our preoccupations, views and experiences. Yet, we confronted ourselves with the limits of both academic jargon and casual conversation. We needed to find a new way to communicate, convince and sensitise, positioned in between the technical vocabulary and the popular conversation. In this blog we aim to share our thoughts in a way that bridges science and experience.
