28.03.22 // Parading through a future circular neighbourhood

Redactie Geen categorie

Next stop of the parade: the UNESCO conference “Impactful Actions for a Sustainable Future through Art & Science”. A dazzling, international programme for three weeks, both online and live from Nancy, France. On March 28, images on Dutch circular area development will spiral around in an online science-and-art ‘parade’ that is worth sharing with an international audience.

In 2030 the Dutch economy is 50% circular, 100% in 2050. Circular area development of existing business parks contributes to this ambition – yet we need to build knowledge and expertise from scratch and explore how existinglocal knowledge and practices can be part of the mix. What is circular area development? Who is involved in the decision-making? What are the best practices and failures? How to solve the tensions between housing and industry? Making a transition to a circular economy requires brainpower just as much as it involves all our senses: we need new images, new vocabularies, new sounds to move forwards a truly sustainable future. We challenge you to explore and experience this with us during the ‘parade’ on March 28.

Let yourself be carried away by the story of researcher Marleen Buizer (Wageningen University & Research) about the insights from research on circular area development in The Hague, Netherlands. Discover with music artist Josué Amador (Codarts Rotterdam) what circular area development actually sounds like. Visual artist Ulrike Hahn (Erasmus University Rotterdam) takes you on a journey through the visualization of circularity. And Irmgard Bomers (I’M BINCK) takes us on a ride exploring the process of participatory co-creation behind some of the most striking area interventions in the Binckhorst. The parade will be hosted by Judith Schueler (ACCEZ), Ellen Loots and Amanda Brandellero (RASL).
