|Toelichting (Engels)||What do a nineteenth century fort, a city centre, an agricultural area, a neighbourhood park and a river valley have in common? All these landscapes were part of the VALUE+ project and the subject of five international workshops involving students of Garden and Landscape Design of VHL University of Applied Sciences. The aim of the VALUE+ project was to improve green infrastructure and urban spaces by integrating bottom-up and top-down approaches. In the investment sites, excellent landscape design was combined with effective community engagement (VALUE+). Cities in North West Europe are facing similar issues and transnational cooperation ensures that best practises are shared and countries can learn from each other’s innovative approaches. The international design charrette was one of these innovations and turned out to be a successful tool for integrating a strategic approach with more community involvement. A charrette is an intensive multi-day design or planning workshop with clients, stakeholders, designers and other professionals. The design charrette allows a diverse group of people to quickly generate design solutions that integrate a diversity of interests.|
