Description

CULTIVATION IS PERMANENT RESTORATION
World Transformation Session on SOIL
in the framework of You Are Here.

━━━

Keynote

Dirk Sijmons (H+N+S landscape architects / Amersfoort) as part of the Dutch Climate Tables, H+N+S was invited to investigate how agriculture should be transformed to reduce CO2 emissions. The You Are Here exhibition shows four system sections of four typical Dutch landscapes (peat, sand, clay and city). They demonstrate how our landscape changes, but also vice versa, how the landscape can act as a director and what links there can be with other social issues.

in a debate with
Joris Relaes (ILVO)
Brecht Goussey (BoerEnCompagnie)

moderated by
Joachim Declerck (AWB)

What is it about?

For centuries, we have lived of the fertility and diversity of this moist soil. Current agriculture paradoxically poses a threat to sustainable and healthy food production. After all, a shortage or excess of water has a direct impact on agriculture and landscape. The extreme drought of 2017 and 2018 is clear proof. Changes are therefore necessary. The impact of adaptation of land use is multifaceted: stronger agriculture, a varied landscape, a better water supply and a sustainable soil recovery. Farmers can thus take on a new task as nature and landscape builders, water herders or even as energy producers. The assignment is no longer seen as a purely technical issue.

World Transformation Sessions?

You Are Here puts twelve urgent questions on the agenda, both in exhibition and in programme: with the slogan “no transition without spatial transformation”, we ask the question what role spatial design can play in imagining and testing optimistic answers. The World Transformation Sessions is a series of twelve public debates where innovative practitioners speak up. Their presentations are followed by a conversation with other persons of interest. As such, transition thinkers, experts, spatial planners and architects are invited to the 23d floor of the WTC-I building.
