Urbanism

“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

Using an interdisciplinary approach, Sweco works on sustainable planning and development of the living, working and recreational environment.
