On 21 February, the Dutch 'Open Planbureau' will look at the Dutch elections and the political programmes from the perspective of the commons.
This event will be in Dutch. More information about it can be found on the Dutch version of this event page.
Elections of 2017
How can we measure the effects of the election programmes of our political parties? Traditionally, it is the CPB (Central Planning Bureau) that calculates the effects of all ideas and wishes. But are the models that CPB uses still up to date? Can you solve problems within the same system that created them? Can we count on endless economic growth and market forces, or should we shift our focus?
The 'Open Planbureau' organizes a number of public meetings in the Dutch context of the national elections of 2017, to find out how the election programmes score and what our findings are.
