Abstract

This book is the concrete product of an academic exercise: the Master’s course ‘Designing and Planning Sustainable Energy Islands Atelier.’ It is the condensed result of three months’ work by six teachers and sixty students from the disciplines of landscape architecture, spatial planning and cultural geography at Wageningen University. These people spent three months considering the matter of a sustainable energy future for Goeree-Overflakkee and Schouwen-Duiveland. They focused on the following four landscape types that are found on the islands: • The coastal landscape • The agricultural landscape • The recreati onal landscape • The urban landscape They envisioned a future in which enough renewable energy is generated to fulfi l at least the need of the island’s residents in a sustainable way.
