Beauty in river management communication

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific


The central proposal in Ties Rijcken’s talk at the NCR river days is to have future river management and science revolve around the concept of beauty – on various levels: beauty in the way the river system serves the needs of society, beauty in the way it is studied, beauty in the way it is perceived through the senses and beauty in the way all this is visualised and communicated among experts and between experts and stakeholders. The talk builds on his dissertation Emergo (written between 2012 and 2017) and the internet platform Flows (under development since 2015).
