Nederland Luistert [the Netherlands is listening] arose from a need to give practical meaning to the concept of "listening," and to combat the polarization and alienation of people in relation to different opinions with curiosity, because what connects us strengthens us, and what divides us enriches us, as the Netherlands and as human beings.
