Hi! I am Antoon Blokland, water activist by profession, and I love to gravel. The year 2022 I am a cycling water reporter. I grab my bike and gravel along water projects in Africa, Asia and Europa. I will report my gravel for water here.
Over 15 years I worked in conference rooms in cities like Nairobi, Jakarta, Brussels, Washington and The Hague. I lobbied, campaigned and convinced politicians, investors and water experts to do more to have healthy water for all. I enjoyed every day of it, and contributed to many water projects in Africa and Asia. But still over 2 billion people in the world lack access to healthy drinking water.
In 2022 I grab my bike and gravel along the water projects as the water cycling reporter. My bike is a door to the world of water, and meet new people and hear their ideas, see their challenges and experience new opportunities.
