My guest this week, Jos de Blok, has been on the bucket list of Being Human for a number of years. He's the founder of Buurtzorg, a community nursing organisation that has embracing the self-organising principle to stunning effect.
In recognition of his contributions, Jos shares the RSA's Albert Award with the likes of Tim Berners-Lee and Stephen Hawking. Recently, having grown Buurtzorg to become an international operation, he is taking an interest in applying his principles to politics.
A big thank you to Tom van der Lubbe to helping to make this happen.

In this episode, we talk:

Letting go of products and activities
- The ‘needing’ principle
Forgetting your MBA
Ditching risk thinking
- The human society
