“It takes a village to raise a child.” A well-known African saying that illustrates a universal value: that as a community, we are responsible for creating a pleasant, healthy living environment for our future generations. Developing ideas, sharing insights, cherishing our environment. This is how we work together, just like children learn when growing up. It takes a village. Our community and our living environment have become complex, its challenges urgent. It’s more important than ever to shape tomorrow’s environment along sustainable lines, for ourselves, our children and our planet. That requires ambition, creativity and innovation. It’s up to us to achieve this, together with everyone involved, across disciplines and sectors, in different contexts. BUUR and Sweco are combining therefor forces. By joining together as one, we can have a greater impact on our living environment. To its benefit. Together, we can translate the shared ambition of ‘Transforming Society Together’ into a concrete vision and projects. BUUR reinforces the interdisciplinary approach adopted by Sweco and will form a single team with Urban.Habitat. Together, we are setting the tone in Belgium, leading the way whilst keeping a view on Europe and our global goals. Discover our vision of urbanism at www.buur.be

The landscape, which traditionally plays an important role for agriculture, nature and recreation, is becoming increasingly intertwined with urban areas. On this interface, Sweco designs and establishes sustainable open spaces with attention to the recreational value and use, such as green areas, urban and landscape parks, cemetery parks, green structures for urban areas and industrial estates, as well as landscaping for infrastructure projects. We strive for a comprehensive approach in the layout and management of nature and woodland, with respect for the ecological and heritage values. Our concern is for the deployment of these ecosystem services for our society.
