Living Landscape

All week at Ketelhuisplein | Strijp-S

Brabant is writing history with the future. Interested in taking part and experiencing this? Find out more in the Living Landscape!

This interactive exhibit will inspire and challenge you to make choices, enabling you to experience how green energy flows, changes in agriculture, smart mobility, innovative strength and circular construction all come together in your city or town. Think it’s not an immediate concern? The future is closer than you think!
Did you know you can also impact your future environment? Using your own press pass, you can make choices in the seven worlds of the Living Landscape. Swiping, turning knobs, opening doors and taking measurements is sure to make your heart beat faster. And who knows? Your ideas might just make the front page of the newspaper of the future...

Interested in more in-depth exploration? No problem! There’s also a theatre and a daily programme with serious games, inspiring speakers, pitches from students and so much more!
