Interview with Marieke Schouten, co-chair of the Zero Pollution Stakeholder Platform

The principle of 'One Health' acknowledges the connection between human and biodiversity health. It recognises our inter-connectedness, and that is very important.

Marieke Schouten, Alderman of the municipality of Nieuwegein and co-chair of the Zero Pollution Stakeholder Platform. 
In this interview, Ms. Schouten highlighted the importance of applying tailored approaches to different pollution problems. However,  the common goal is “that they all must be addressed at the source” , which is precisely the core of the EU Action Plan towards a zero pollution for air, water, and soil.
