Lunchtime Lectures – Unbuilt Polder: Markerwaard (Gerda Roeleveld)

March 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm | FREE. Gerda Roeleveld presents the curious case of how the land reclamation project “Markerwaard” in the Netherlands went unbuilt. The first ideas to impolder the area date back almost 350 years and the changes in urgencies and goals over the past 100 years are well documented and informative.
