Project: EZproject

Project Details


De Nieuwe Hovenier strengthens the curriculum of (future) green space providers on the theme of climate resilience, healthy and safe food, and corporate social responsibility in general. Health and climate and playing a social role on the basis of the green living environment become part of the landscape gardener's work package. Its business model for long-term management and maintenance of the city's green infrastructure in the market context is central. The new landscape gardener or landscape manager will become the point of contact for the integral set of ecosystem services for greenery in urban areas.

This is demonstrated in four deprived neighbourhoods/areas spread across NL: in Almelo, in Almere, in one of the BAR municipalities or Rotterdam South, and in North Limburg. These demonstrations are advised, monitored and evaluated by the researchers, bringing together knowledge from practice and theory. The demonstrations form the pivotal point in the exchange of knowledge between the involved landscape gardeners, municipalities and Wageningen Research experts and a wider learning community, including regional MBO and HBO training centers. Students can visit the example projects, follow masterclasses together with landscapers from the region, and apply the methods and step-by-step plans that are being developed elsewhere to gain experience and give feedback.

The communication, cooperation agreements between the municipality, housing association, landscape gardener, residents and any other actors regarding greening, and the earner model of the landscape gardener are central to this project. The project is developing a process approach in the form of a step-by-step plan, with which innovations in green space in neighborhoods with a low SES actually yield benefits. End product is a digital advice and knowledge product that is mainly distributed by the green sector concerned.
