The next ten years, the Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier, will be testing the dikes of the province of North-Holland, improving them wherever necessary.

The Netherlands, and North-Holland in particular, is a low-lying country with a lot of water. Partly due to intensive farming, land levels in the polders are falling. Our climate is changing. Sea levels rise and we are confronted to an increasing extent with short but heavy rain. We developed a short animation around these issues. We illustrated one long scene that explains the story.

The animation is part of a longer (timelapse) video, developed by the Timewriters from Amersfoort.
