The Research School for Socio-Economic and Natural Sciences of the Environment (SENSE) is a partnership of nine Dutch universities and two institutes. On June 20, SENSE organizes the conference Our Future Energy Landscape, where answers are sought to the question of how we jointly ensure the sun and wind energy transition on land. Live cartoonist Herman Roozen was present all day and caught the conference in a big series of cartoons.
The transition to non-fossil, sustainable energy sources leads to major changes in the urban and rural area. They evoke resistance from citizens, farmers, conservationists, politicians and others. With the Our Future Energy Landscape conference, SENSE wants to provide insight into the various spatial, social, financial and political possibilities for realizing the energy transition, taking into account the various (sometimes conflicting) claims on land use, possibilities for multifunctional land use and participatory processes that support it. for the energy transition.
