The Deltametropolis Association (NL) is organizing an international symposium on Confrontations in the Metropolitan Landscape, on Friday 8th, September 2017. In the estate "Kleine Vennep", it is a part of the Landscape Triennial 2017 in the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Worldwide urban regions experience the pressure of urbanisation, energy transition, climate change and intensive agriculture on their landscape. Simultaneously, regions start to acknowledge the importance of a vital and attractive landscape as a key success factor in the global battle for talent (see Blind Spot). The question is how to combine these increasing sustainability transitions with internal metropolitan demands, without loss of existing landscape qualities.
As these matters are equally urgent in the Netherlands as abroad, the Deltametropolis Association has reached out in its international network to research professionals, strategic policy makers and landscape design practitioners.
The places are limited, you can register until August 25.
