My name is Gretha Leever, studied Economy & Law (Hanze), Regional Geography & Spatial Planning (RUG) and Crisis Management. The main part of my working experience is dedicated to public service in different fields, like social welfare, urban planning, waste management, energy savings, environment protection, special advisor to the local government, public health and public order and security.
Working for the local government, mainly in the Netherlands, for Groningen Municipality and through the GGD (regional health department) for all the municipalities in the province of Groningen. After the conflict in Kosovo I have been working in Kosovo for almost six years for the European Commission, the United Nations and VNG International as Local Expert. In my current job at the GGD I try to connect public health and security with spatial planning, climate-adaptation, energy transition, and other fields, amongst several other tasks like crisis coordinator and the transition of the GGD.
