Vera Knook

I am a river lover from the Netherlands, who lives in Peru. Rivers have shaped my life since I started kayaking at 14 years old. In 2017 I graduated as a hydraulic engineer, but soon got involved in the protection of rivers. In 2019 I found a team to organise the first Students for Rivers Camp. This resulted in the foundation of the River Collective. I love creating opportunities with this community, as well as being a seasonal raft guide on the Marañón.
