Nature deserves better
What do you give as a gift to the brand new State Secretary for Nature Conservation Henk Bleker? The Ark Foundation thought it should be a book in which the benefits of nature in the Netherlands were mapped out. And then you switch on Triple E to get it done under steam and boiling water. This has resulted in the book ‘Nature deserves better’, written by Tom Bade and his team in two weeks. In addition to the countless examples of how nature leads to economic benefits, the book also introduces the ‘Economic Main Structure’ – or €M$ – which coincidentally coincides completely with the Ecological Main Structure. Jeroen Helmer displayed this €M$ on a beautiful poster, which is also included in the book.
