Better Wetter is a program for future-proof water management in the Northeast of the Dutch province Friesland. The program consists of new ecological and economic support to develop a wetland environment.
One of the main goals is to put a knowledge centre in nature area “It Bûtenfjild” north of Feanwâlden, for practical water management. The knowledge centre connects regional issues with education and research. Research by students of the university of Wageningen show many potential uses of common water plant cattail: biofuels, insulation, composite fibers and material that may be useful for better health. Studio Tjeerd Veenhoven brings the results of this research into practice.
