Climate Energy Heritage and Spatial Planning

27 June till 28 July 2019

This exhibition by the Creative Industries Fund NL (facilitated by Bureau Europa) on the results of the Heritage & Spatial Planning Programme demonstrates why the knowledge of designers and heritage specialists is vital to the spatial and administrative shaping of transition issues in the area of climate and energy. It focuses on sixteen projects that outline how this cooperation can be shaped locally and what solutions they can lead to.

The Netherlands must be redesigned in the coming years.

Climate change forces us to look again at our living environment. History teaches us that an integrated approach is beneficial to this type of major social task and that cooperation is key. It is therefore vital to link local and regional initiatives in order to exchange knowledge and learn from each other. It is also important that these initiatives receive support. A strong government that steers the change process, conveys a vision, and sets clear goals is helpful in this respect.

the exhibition and the film, in combination with a debate programme, travel as a roadshow throughout the country. The opening of TURN at Bureau Europa takes place simultaneously with the opening of The Euregio Derailed?

Debate on 3 July
The debate, held in the afternoon on 3 July, brings together inspiring designers and policymakers to draw up environmental visions, visualise local and regional challenges, share insights, and to translate these elements at a national level. The debate itself is preceded by several short lectures and group discussions. Paul Gerretsen from the Delta Metropolis Association will moderate the debate. The participants give short presentations before the debate. Debate participants include: Maarten Tas from the Creative Industries Fund NL; Christopher de Vries (Rademacher de Vries) talks about the ENCI; and Volmar Delheij talks about the problems in Parkstad. Afterwards, there will be sub-sessions, in which the audience splits into groups to further discuss the presentations. The debate ends with a Q&A and drinks.
