Inspire high-level US Water & Resilience delegation with Bluelands


What a great opportunity to present our floating platform prototype #Bluelands to a very high-level Water & Resilience delegation from the US!

💚 Organized by The Green Village and VPdelta+, the visit and tour gave us the chance to introduce our innovative solutions and approaches to tackle global urban and water challenges.

🌊 Our colleague, Anna Louka, introduced our vision and #Bluelands – modular floating platform – solving housing and flooding challenges. Pioneers from other innovative companies, including Leon Haines cofounder from Reefy, presented nature-based solution and eco-engineering for coastal protection, and Ruben Wentink from FieldFactors showcased #BlueBloqs, an innovative rainwater treatment and storage technology.

💡 The US delegation was particularly interested in the Dutch approach to water management, coastal protection in the face of a changing climate, and what we do to increase urban and coastal resilience.

🌻 We are all very happy to meet and answer questions from the representatives from Harris County Flood Control DistrictTexas Water Development BoardCity of HoustonSouth Florida Water Management DistrictCity of JacksonvilleMiami-Dade CountyCity of BostonBoston Harbor NowCommonwealth of MassachusettsCity of New OrleansConsulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in MiamiNBSO-Texas and Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
