Today the Community of Practice of the programme Building + Biodiversity started. The CoP is a group of nature experts, developers, builders, communicators, urbanists, architects and landscape architects with own practice and working for cities and provinces and the state. The CoP shares the interest in and knowledge of building for biodiversity in the urban areas. Nextcity.nl partner Maike van Stiphout gave the kickoff lecture today teaching the 3 rules to make a project nature inclusive. Robbert Snep gave a lecture and workshop focussing on the building process. The moderator was Jelle de Jong, director IVN.
The Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO) organises the programme (www.bouwenplusbiodiversiteit.nl). The goal is to accelerate the introduction of nature inclusive building in the whole building chain: from ambitions until construction and maintenance. The programme launched the open call for the best nature inclusive project, the winner will be announced Spring 2019.
