In Dutch

What if in 1830 Holland and Belgium had remained as one? What would be the role and function of Haarlem in that country of nearly thirty million souls? What would the state of art and culture, education and science, economy and ecology be? Classicist and philosopher Luc Devoldere, since 2002 chief editor of Ons Erfdeel vzw, answers these questions, after which mayor Bernt Schneiders gives his views on his historic vision. They'll then be joined by Marc Reynebeau to discuss the matter further. Singer-songwriter Lucky Fonz III rounds things off with a mini-concert where the Nederbelgisch Feestlied (Flemish Anthem) will be the high point. And all this is happening on the very day when, two hundred years ago, King Willem I was inaugurated in Brussels.
