Mark your calendars for May 9-13, 2016, and join us for a professional development program focused on resilience and sea-level-rise adaptation in the Netherlands. Visit the world’s most advanced water infrastructure and management sites and connect with the engineers, administrators and operators responsible for their creation. The Dutch have been working on water challenges for more than 1,000 years. Recently the focus has shifted to climate adaptation and resilience. Explore this shifting mindset, network with other professionals interested in water, and foster solutions. Each year Florida Earth takes a group of professionals in the water field or interested in learning more about water governance, policy and management techniques. The group visits the Maeslant Barrier, the largest moving structure in the world; Kinderdijk, famous for its windmills; Futureland, the land-creation project; and numerous ancient cities filled with incredible architecture. I went primarily to network with other professionals working with water, but I found the content to be really valuable to my career,” said Jack Hampson, vice president at Atkins Global and previous participant. The program is offered to all sectors and all fields for people interested in furthering their water governance and management knowledge. Florida Earth can also create a customized trip based on this seasoned model for specific organizations.
