The National Committee for 4 and 5 May invited him to give the Fifth of May Lecture in Haarlem and he was asked for the Martin Luther King lecture by the VU Amsterdam. In addition, Nasrdin is the initiator of IEDER1, a foundation that aims to serve as a platform for the many people that want to embrace diversity and who, together, want to work on a Netherlands in which, despite the differences, unity is paramount.   

Currently he is ready to start on some new projects including the One Night Stand-film In Limbo which will be shot in Greece.
