Over the years we have created an array of diverse strategies, that continuously guide companies and municipalities in reaching a sustainable future. We nurture a culture of dialogue, trust, and a human-centered approach when forming strategies with our clients and collaborators.
Our strategies vary from large-scale biodiversity strategies, strategic nature-based climate adaptation, place-making strategies, and sustainable process design.
As a design studio, we also offer to kickstart the strategies with nature. We have a great experience with catapulting visions and strategies with temporary nature-based projects that turn the strategies into places with physical impact from day one.
The Values of Nature:
A Need for a New Driver of Urban Development
Imagine your quality of life being just as dependent on urban development as on social media. What would that lead to? The answer to that question depends on the drivers of urban development.
Our economies, livelihoods, and well-being all depend on our most precious asset: Nature
These were the opening lines of Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta’s report “The Economics of Biodiversity” and were also at the center of the conversation our CEO, Mette Skjold, had with Dasgupta at the UIA World Congress of Architects CPH 2023.
They agreed that we, as humans, depend on nature – not only as a source of resources and wealth but also as the foundation for our physical and mental well-being. We are not separate from nature. We are nature.
