An interview with HRH Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands
Over the coming months, Rewilding Europe will conduct interviews with prominent persons in conservation and rewilding across Europe. We are delighted and honoured that Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands has agreed to feature as the first interviewee of this series, as we launch our new website. She has been actively involved from the beginning as a special advisor to Rewilding Europe. She is also a member of the Rewilding Europe Circle.
Can you briefly tell us about the history of your involvement with Rewilding Europe? When did you first hear about it, and why did you choose to become involved?
I had the honour of moderating the official launch of Rewilding Europe in Brussels in 2010. I immediately loved the European dimension, the ambition and energy of the team behind it. It was hard to resist getting more involved and it has been a special pleasure to watch the initiative grow ever since. I have always been passionate about wild nature, and have been active in the fields of sustainability, conservation and climate change for many years. It was therefore a natural decison for me to work with Rewilding Europe because we share the same vison for Europe.
