Deltacongres 2019

20 november 2019


On November 14, I attended the National Delta Congress in the Zeelandhallen in Goes. An annual gathering of ‘water people’ and all those who are particularly involved in the Delta Program. This is to exchange the many knowledge and initiatives in this field with the motto: “People must have knowledge of the power of water”, as Ria Geluk opened the congress. In addition to the Delta Commissioner Peter Glas, who mentioned water safety is of existential importance to the Netherlands, one of the other speakers was the Belgian architect Joachim Declerck, who addressed the audience in key-note speech                                                                                                                                                 “The next big thing will be a lot of small things” called for new practices to be developed.
