NEW BABYLON 3: an ‘Inspiration Lab’ for the future of the Zwin region
NEW BABYLON 3 is a view on life as it could develop in the future in West Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (Netherlands) and West Vlaanderen (Belgium). A view that develops from a process of thinking, discussing and imagining. With monthly moments of exchange in the Zwingebouw in Cadzand-Dorp. Here, general and scientific knowledge is philosophically tested and deepened.
This project is subdivided into a number of themes or ‘building blocks’ and for each ‘building block’, a separate chapter has been made with an introductory text. In this text, current developments are explained and from there on further thought is given to the future.
These building blocks are:
- Housing and living environment,
Agriculture / Food supply,
Infrastructure and Mobility,
Energy & Environment and Management.
Many possible sources of inspiration, which provide a broader insight and invite you to read further, can be found on and on . Moreover, the contributions shown here are ranked according to a subject.
