The Netherlands are internationally renowned for their approach to sustainable urban living. Sustainability in Holland is not so much focussed on technological solutions, but rather on low-cost, high-impact strategies. Major points of attention in urban planning are social infrastructure, densification, bike traffic and public transport.
A characteristic of all Dutch projects is the creative mindset and openness to unusual, innovative solutions. This can be seen in a large variety of project types, from brownfield and harbour conversions to bottom-up initiatives, climate-proof neighbourhoods and playgrounds made from recycled material.
