Lodewijk Schulte - junior advisor

Lodewijk studied Water Management at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and completed the MSc in Hydrology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2022. The choice of a bachelor’s degree from the University of Applied Sciences and a master’s degree from a University has proven to be a beneficial combination. The project-based approach, experience with GIS, Illustrator, InDesign, and HEC-RAS, combined with knowledge of the hydrological system, is a useful combination to access water-related challenges.

Throughout his career, Lodewijk has focused on river systems. His passion for rivers originates from growing up in Gorinchem, where he spent much of his time playing in the floodplains of the Merwede River. He is enthusiastic to contribute to more sustainable and natural river systems.

As a nature enthusiast living in the urbanized area of Rotterdam, Lodewijk tries to inspire those around him to engage with nature. With experience on stage as a young comedian, Lodewijk feels comfortable addressing groups and enjoys using his skills to raise awareness about water-related issues.
