If there are no dikes, how do we protect ourselves against floods? What are implications for the geology and the ecosystem? Could such a landscape offer potential for agriculture, leisure and tourism? How would we manage and govern such landscapes? The multidisciplinary conference hosts state-of-the-art projects and research and addresses radical ideas from multiple perspectives. Bas Haring (philosopher, writer, tv-personality) will kick-off the program by providing his thought provoking views on the topic.
