The Waddensea is a part of the Northsea and is unique because of it's tides, the wild life, and islands. It is the nursery for birds, fish and other sea life. What can we do to keep this environment and what can we do to help the rest of the sea world.

My experience comes from co-creating and co-managing organisations, companies and associations / coalitions. Those I use as tools in positive change.

My focus is on 1) creating structural solution for both the actual need for fitting & decent, payable housing: in strong combination with the solving / ending, regional organised, of temporarily emptyness of real estate; 2) enhancing global actual insight in biodiversity-developments; 3) re-creating the rich seas, capable of sustaining both nature and economy; 4) feeding enthusiasm - in youth first - for nature, (sub)culture and ecological / scientifical research.
