HKB heeft een deelwebsite gelanceerd over het Deltaschap. Een visie voor de Eurodelta waarbij de relatie Stad en Achterland meer in balans wordt gebracht.
“The self-sufficient city needs to provide for much of its own needs in terms of food, energy and processing of wastes. To become this way, the city needs to rely on its surrounding area. There is the need to establish a symbiotic relationship where the city can benefit from the hinterland without jeopardizing the exact qualities of the hinterland.
In this interdependency the city and the (rural) region act as equal partners. However, these days the cities’ interests seem to dominate. Therefore we propose a strategy that will trigger a (economic) revaluation of the hinterland and will create this synergetic relationship between city and region. We illustrate this by looking at the Delta region near the Dutch city of Rotterdam.”
