Environmental vision Fryslân for a future-proof rural area

We support the province and municipalities in Fryslân in developing their environmental vision. We combine our knowledge of spatial planning, adaptive spatial planning, future scenarios and Design Thinking. After that, we enter a dialogue with the Frisian community to gain input about the rural area of the future. For example: how do nature, agriculture and leisure correlate? The output of the research are options and choices that are important for the future-proof development and establishment of the Frisian rural area.

Outcomes:

  • Practically applicable future scenarios in image and text
