‘Living safely with water’

Water Authority Waterschap Noorderzijlvest

Climate change leads to new challenges. Sea levels are rising, so we need smart and lasting dike concepts. Drought makes us try to retain and store more surplus water. Every day we work on living safely with water. We take care of clean and healthy water, we treat water and we provide sufficient water in every season. Are you interested? Come to know us and join our water ambitions. Learn more about us at


Workshop description


Experience the challenges of water management

Are you interested in water management? Register for our interactive game. Imagine you have been chosen as a political representative in the board of the water authority (Waterschap). Together with your team you will decide on living safely with water. Would you strengthen dykes? Is it still safe to build houses in certain areas? How do you temporarily store surplus water? It is up to you and your team. In the meantime you have to deal with different stakeholders, parties and interests. Just as the water authority does in real life.

Our dijkgraaf Roeland van der Schaaf, the chair of our water authority, will introduce the game. Student spatial science Foeke de Wolf will guide you through the session. He will also tell you more about study and job opportunities Noorderzijlvest is offering. Join our water ambitions.
