Dictionary of Dutchness


Milieudefensie is a national environmental organisation founded in 1971 and which now has 80 local groups. It not only lobbies on behalf of the environment at home but also thinks the Netherlands should take the lead in the global fight against climate change. This, it says, is because the Netherlands is a rich country which lies at or below sea level and so has a lot to lose.
