The Weather Makers are a group of passionate and pioneering engineers, with a background in coastal engineering and multidisciplinary projects. Social awareness inspired us to use our technical knowledge, skills and professional network in hydraulics, morphology, meteorology, ecology, hydrology and economy to start The Weather Makers and act against the climate issues the world is confronting today.

The Weather Makers BV is a private company.

The Weather Makers are committed to make profitable projects happen with holistic engineering & nature based solutions with the aim to restore our planet.

The shareholders have agreed to use profits to enhance and enable the growth of our vision and empowerment of more projects.

In the legal structure also a foundation with ANBI status has been arranged. Reason for this additional entity is the financial possibilities towards investments in future projects or research in partnership with international foundations, funds and other entities.

Till today, the foundation is not used and has not received any funds. In case this situation will change we will directly communicate.
