Walter Dresscher studied architecture at the technical university of Delft. After working at several architectural offices in Paris and Amsterdam he started his own initiative called “de natuurlijke stad” (The Natural City). Around the world people move to cities and the population on the countryside shrinks. The city is more and more the natural habitat for people. The fact that people still experience city and nature as two different entities shows that cities do not yet provide a true natural living environment. Walter Dresscher seeks opportunities to transform cities so they can truly be “natural”.
In 2017 Walter Dresscher joined the P2P foundation team to coordinate the Dutch language blog. He implements P2P values in his work and seeks to connect and promote P2P practices. In this role he hopes to be able to accelerate the needed transition to new value systems and transform cities to more just, open and fair environments for (human) life.
