Jolanda Boer (RIVM senior epidemiologist and nutritionist, alumna 1987*)
||Water pollution via medicines, or its remains, is a serious problem. Even though the contaminated water could be filtered by a technical process, a reduction of medicine usage would be far more sustainable. What could be the role of nutrition and lifestyle in regard to this solution?
|Lifestyle as medicine or driver? (NL)
||dr.ir. Annemien Haveman-Nies (WUR associate professor human nutrition, alumna 1990*)
||A healthy lifestyle has many positive effects on the health of young and old. But there is still much unclear and unknown. Is healthy living something for patients, fanatics, or for all of us?

||We, as Wageningen Women Engineers’ Network (VWI) and Network Land and Water (NLW), are concerned whether there will be enough water for food in 2050. Delta Planning contributes to insights and solutions. In our combined session we raise two points: First the importance of taking the opinion of the local community, especially women, into account. Secondly, delta planning requires new knowledge and skills. Invest in people, especially women, to build the required capacity.

Loes did her MSc-thesis project under the supervision of Atze Jan and after that she joined a multinational company to start a successful career. At the same time, Atze Jan continued his research on structuring processes, and discovered a new method to make fibrous protein products. That discovery was picked up by national newspapers and read by Loes. That turned out an important moment in both careers. Now, Loes and Atze Jan closely cooperate on the development of the next generation meat analogues.
