Water technology students from developing countries visit Ameland

Tuesday September 6th, 2022

In September, a group of students from the so-called Small Islands Developing States (SIDS, Small Islands in Development) visited Ameland. SIDS is a United Nations-recognised group of islands in developing regions, mostly located in the southern hemisphere. The students who visited Ameland are pursuing a master’s degree in Delft at the Institute for Water Education (IHE-Delft).

The students came to Ameland to learn about the unique water situation on the Wadden Islands. They were also interested in the Wadden Campus and how Amelanders are involved in sustainable energy projects. With Mayor Leo Pieter Stoel, they talked about challenges facing islands, including sustainability and tourism. Also on the programme was an evening tour of the lighthouse and the group took an extended walk on the Wadden Sea.
