The programme

Breda is city of about 125.000 inhabitants in the southern part of The Netherlands. The city is built on a site where small rivers from a landscape of lower sandy hills enter the flat claypolders of the coastal area. This situation has determined the greenstructure of the urban landscape. The city has a tradition of green structure planning that makes it an interesting case for the COST action. The programme is as follows:


Saturday, 17 November - arrival of participants


Sunday, 18 November - 9.30 -16.30 - excursion in the Breda area, demonstrating the greenstructure of the urban landscape, visits to projects, discussion about planning issues related to ecological and social aspects of green areas, urban expansion and urban renewal.
