I really like rivers and water management. When I\’m at the beach I always create tiny \”rivers\” (of course they\’re not really rivers, they\’re created by the tide). I love nature and whenever I see a large tree I always like to admire it.

Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

In the Netherlands the weather is getting more extreme because of climate change. This is a problem because a big portion of the land is built upon and this means that in wet periods a lot of water accumulates which causes floods. Besides that the dry periods are relatively new to our country so it doesn't know how to deal with it very well.
