Study on Empowering the Northern Netherlands

How is the Northern Netherlands to earn its living in the long term?  In the Empowering the Northern Netherlands Study, De Zwarte Hond explored how the competitive strength of the Northern Netherlands and its sub-regions can be structurally reinforced.

The study identified three main challenges: reinforcing the economic structure, strengthening the environmental qualities and improving connections.

A design-based study was initiated to sketch various conceivable solutions and to offset them against the three main challenges. An exploration of “what might we want?”.
