Open Water Boards and Civic Participation

Climate in Straatbeeld 2018-05

I was invited to write a column for Straatbeeld 2018 number 5. The theme of the magazine is Climate, with a lot of information about the conference Climate on Thursday 8 November at Expo Houten, The Netherlands. My column is about water, water awareness and water boards. And of course about civic participation and community initiatives related to water policy and implementation.

Are we doing enough?

At the heart of my brief exploration is the question: Are we actually doing enough? Can our water boards manage it all, all the downpours, those dried-out rivers and agricultural areas, that increasingly higher sea level? How can I help?
