International Symposium at the Landscape Triennial 2017

Author Kees Christiaanse will act as a keynote speaker during this international symposium at the Landscape Triennial 2017 on September 8th. He will elaborate on the Haarlemmermeer situation where urbanisation, air traffic and landscape are closely intertwined. Worldwide urban regions experience the pressure of urbanisation, 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. The question is how to combine these increasing sustainability transitions with internal metropolitan demands, without loss of existing landscape qualities.
