The Netherlands has a lot to offer the world
The way in which we live and work and in which money is made and distributed, is subject to fundamental change. The consequences of digitisation and sustainability on our economy have an enormous impact on society. This provides a unique opportunity for us to decisively shift the current status quo on a multitude of relevant themes.
Many of the current jobs stand to be lost, only to be replaced by at least as many different forms of employment. The way in which we live will also change: smaller housing, community living, rental rather than owned property, and enjoyment of the many conveniences that form a part of modern living.
These trends obviously have consequences for the spatial layout of our country. Only how can we organise our country in such a way as to maximise the benefits from this transition?
