Biografie

Marthe Derkzen is a postdoctoral researcher with the Health and Society chair group. She studies urban nature from a social justice perspective with an interest in climate adaptation planning and stewardship of the commons. Her work in the PARTIGAN project revolves around the question: How can participatory greening reduce socioeconomic health disparities?

Earlier, Marthe coordinated a multi-stakeholder partnership for equitable and sustainable land governance at Utrecht University, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and worked as a policy officer at the research funding agency NWO. For her PhD in Environmental Geography (VU University Amsterdam) she published on quantification and valuation methods for urban ecosystem services, working with the municipality of Rotterdam on green infrastructure for climate adaptation and with Azim Premji University in Bangalore on slum dwellers’ reliance on rapidly degrading urban lakes.

Marthe also teaches fun science classes at primary schools for Planeet in Actie!

PARTIGAN: Participatory Greening of Arnhem and Nijmegen

In PARTIGAN we investigate how greening the living environment can stimulate contact with and use of urban green infrastructure, by especially more vulnerable citizens, and in that way improve their health and well-being and at the same time reduce socioeconomic health disparities. The project is carried out in Arnhem and Nijmegen, two cities already working on citizen participation and on incorporating the green environment in health and environmental policies.
