A Sketch and Match is a pressure cooker design workshop. During this workshop you will seek new solutions for complex  – and sometimes long lasting –  spatial challenges and dilemmas. Discover how to engage stakeholders actively in planning; from experts to citizens. Accelerate or kick-start the planning process…

Everybody’s contribution is visualized on the spot by drawings, maps, cross sections or diagrams. This encourages a true dialogue, leading to more understanding of planning issues and interests of all people involved. And saves considerable time in the long run. Last but not least, it is great fun!

So what’s the topic? The case is about implementing policies for nature and rural development, water retention and renewable energy in a concrete area in the Zuidelijk Westerkwartier region in Groningen. In the workshop you will represent different stakeholders in a form of role playing, to simulate reality as closely as possible. You don’t want to miss this!
