Gerlies Nap, member of the Organizing Committee

In her daily life Gerlies is environmental manager in the province of Noord-Holland. An environmental manager is responsible for all the contacts with the stakeholders in a project. These projects are not only nature projects, but also infrastructural and recreational projects. She has not only worked on the realisation of a natural bridge, but also on a recreational bicycle path.

At the moment she is working on the realization of a new waterway. Here, too, nature is an important theme, for example when creating nature-friendly banks where possible. Nature is not only part of nature projects, but also of infrastructure and recreational projects. Therefore her motto: 'bring in nature where possible.'
