In Terschelling, we satisfied our thirst for knowledge by exploring potable water with those working and involved in the provision of tap water. Radios from the School were spread around the forest creating listening spots on site. People congregated to listen in different areas around the forest. At the end of the path, they discovered the pop-up studio, with the hosts broadcasting live and recorded interviews with the water experts. We asked workers to bring a tool for the live interview and a sample of water from their workplace.

These are the water samples from the workers we met in Tershcelling. Each one leads you to the water worker’s interview.
