Designing the Future

Today, various global challenges manifest themselves as complex spatial issues. Design appears to be a powerful medium to visualize, shape and, if necessary, adjust the necessary change processes.

This book bundles the insights that resulted from a series of round table discussions and lectures that the initiators have devoted to the themes of mobility, care, living, the productive city, open space, water and the urban metabolism, from December 2016 to February 2017, under the heading 'Designing the Future'.

A very diverse group of administrators, academics, designers, leaders of civil society organisations and cooperatives, project developers, activists, (social) entrepreneurs, consultants, students and investors from both Belgium and the Netherlands, joined the debate, exploring a shared agenda to shape a better future.
