XL distribution centers and biodiversity

Date: Time: 20:30 Location: Cube 220

NIGHT TALK - The Brabant countryside is under pressure. Can we conceive of tempting projects where biodiversity and large-scale distribution centers meet in harmony? (language: Dutch).

The Brabant countryside is under pressure. Left and right, mega halls and huge stables are taking possession of once vast stretches of heather moorland. The development towards increasingly large-scale production in agriculture and logistics seems irreversible. On closer inspection, however, one can also discern a great many small-scale projects aimed at promoting biodiversity and closing natural cycles. These two developments appear to be going on side by side, independently of each another. But is this practical and is it wise? Are there perhaps ways these two could be combined? Can we conceive of tempting projects where biodiversity and large-scale industry meet in harmony? Join environmental economist Daan van Soest (Tilburg Sustainability Center) and Merten Nefs (Deltametropool) in exploring the possibilities!
