From Holland with Love, day 13: Young people are marvelous

Apart from simply the fun of the flight (of yesterday) I also liked to see two special places. The first is one of the Wind mill parks established in the North Sea; Holland is planning many more of these, finally enough to provide power for about one million people in The Netherlands.
The main goal of the trip was the prototype of Ocean Clean Up, a business established five years ago by a very young Dutch entrepreneur, Boyan Slat. Now 24 years old, he is preparing the clean up of all major oceans on the planet with respect to plastic rubbish. It will finally be a billion dollar enterprise, and this device in the North Sea is a test site only created there two weeks ago. If you are not excited about this great project yet, then watch his presentation about this prototype. It is marvelous: young people caring for the future. Wow!
