2.2.1. Nature based solutions for human living with water

Course subject(s) 2. Water under the bridge: What is water culture?

As in the last module, Carola is first up. In the clip below, she explores the ways in which people have developed water spaces over centuries and sometimes millennia to both facilitate human living and to defend ourselves against water threats.

*Erratum: Please note that the floating cellars Carola refers to (5:59) were not built in Amsterdam, but in Edam.
