Lennaert de Leeuw

WRT Intern

My name is Lennaert de Leeuw, I am 21 years old. I am a third year Environmental Science student from the HAS university of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. I am doing an international internship at WRT as part of my education.

The goal of my internship is to reduce plastics waste by teaching the community of Waiheke about product stewardship regarding the use of soft plastics. My project involves setting up a plastics processing plant, where plastics can be processed to be reused by the community.

I chose to go to Waiheke because the assignment really suited my interests as well as the beautiful scenery.
