Some 80 HZ Water Management and Civil Engineering students played a serious game on multi-layer water safety at the Watersnoodmuseum in Ouwerkerk.

This introduced them to the major challenges and important research in the field of water management. Lector Wietse van de Lageweg and researchers Brenda Walles and Chiu Cheng from Building with Nature and lecturer Alco Nijssen played the game. Paul de Beer of the Southwest Delta provided the introduction.

The serious game was created by the Court of Audit. By playing it, students gain insight into the aspects of multi-layer water safety, become aware of all the challenges and possible solutions in the field of water protection and get to know the way governments and civil society organisations work together on urgent tasks.
