Bye-bye Spain. It was a nice short journey and an interesting lecture at Diseinu Berrikuntza Zentrua in Arrasate-Mondragón. After a lot of Tortilla de Patata, some glasses of cider and an extensive trip to the countryside of the Basque country we had to say good bye to Aiur, his family and the students. Looking forward to meet you soon again.

We all know people, who seem to have all the “good” habits: Taking the bike instead of the car or showering only briefly and only cool. Wouldn’t it be nice to adopt at least some of those for the sake of our own health and the environment? This is easier said than done. “How can we build and adopt good habits, which support achieving our self-set goals?” One potential answer is: “Through transformational objects”. Objects, which materialize good habits, but with a little twist. Meet Matthias in Amsterdam on the Habit Summit Europe
to learn more.
