In this second season of the podcast, we talk the housing task. About their own expertise, three young experts talk about how they think digital solutions can help with this task. In the third episode, you can listen to Eva Geerlings and host Pieter-Bas de Visser.

Eva works as a sustainable area development and geodata consultant at Witteveen+Bos. She has a background in social geography and planning and did her Masters in GIS (Geographic Informationsystem). Eva talks about designing healthy cities and how we use data to do so, what is involved in an area development project, circular construction, her overarching role and why she chose to work at Witteveen+Bos.

'To meet the high demand for housing, it has been calculated that around 75,000 houses need to be built per year. If we continue the way we are working now, we won't achieve that. I think digital tools and data can help us start working more efficiently and collaborate more effectively with each other to get projects off the ground faster,' Eva said.
