"Be able to improve the world a little bit. That of course starts with yourself and certainly does not have to be about situations far away. Give nature a chance in a place in the North Sea where you might not expect it. What do we (not yet) know about our North Sea and the consequences of the energy transition? Can we turn offshore wind farms into nature reserves? In addition to working on these opportunities with the The Rich North Sea programme, I am also involved in the risks of wind farms. As a result, I learn a lot about the effects of wind energy on underwater nature and I help to find a balance. I think that's what it's all about. In this program I provide the scientific basis together with my colleagues and I contribute to the content of our projects. In the coming years we will learn how we can combine sustainable energy with fantastic nature!"
