The center of the Netherlands – the Veluwe - consists of nature made by man. More than 100 years ago it was a sand plain without trees. They were called 'sand drifts'. If we use that area all over again by creating a beautiful Veluwe city with Palace Het Loo as a town hall, we can shift all nature to the low (partly inhabited) wet areas. They have much more natural value, there are many more (different types) of animals. The man made nature area Oostvaardersplassen has proven that newly constructed nature can be incredibly beautiful. It is so successful that we now slaughter the animals that feel so happy there, since they multiply too fast. It can therefore work, natural displacement.
