In ‘THE NEW COAST’ Michael takes you on a journey along the imaginary new coastline of The Netherlands.


Considering the reputation the Netherlands has in terms of water management, the title of this book has an almost logical, practical and even seductive ring to it.

Yet in Michael Rhebergen’s research, the idea of a new coast becomes ominous. We are confronted with a new coastline – unavoidably, it would seem, considering the way the climate is changing, undermining our power to control. It was the question of what awaits us in the Netherlands which triggered Michael, as he wondered what this shift might mean to the people living here.
