WHAT
A plan to reforest the whole of the Netherlands by 2060 to create a holistic, eco-friendly, treebased society. The project reveals possible scenarios of a radical green future, integrating trees into our lives.

WHY
It is our responsibility to explore innovative proposals to change how we use the planet’s resources. Reforestation would improve the quality of life in cities and stimulate sustainable agriculture, while strengthening our ecosystems through natural conservation.

HOW
Trees are good for climate stabilisation, soil regeneration, recreation and general happiness. They can also provide nutritious food such as nuts, which could be made into hazelnut milk, acorn bread or cheese made of fermented walnuts. These have the potential to become Dutch staple foods of the future.

QUOTE
Let’s make the Netherlands the first truly green country on the planet.
