Profieloto PieterZW Pieter Veen

Circular Landscapes was founded by landscape architect Pieter Veen. Through his experience in both the profit and nonprofit sectors he has gained an insight into all aspects of the field of sustainability and the landscape. As a Wageningen-educated landscape architect, Pieter has the ability the see the whole picture and make the connections that make it possible to find practical solutions to complex spatial issues. His personal involvement and open mind allow him to bring people together and inspire a collaborative approach.

Pieter is board member of the Fund for nature inclusive local farms and art collective The Outsiders, member of the Spatial Development Advisory Committee of the province of North-Holland and a guest lecturer at various educational institutions. Circular Landscapes is part of UCo, a community which is home to 150 sustainability pioneers and entrepreneurs who operate across a broad spectrum of specialities. They use their expertise to create a more sustainable world, working independently as well as together.

The circular economy could add unexpected qualities to the landscape and reconnect people with their environment. To achieve this we will need to reorganize our use of space and the interaction between business, governments and civilians. This is what I aim to achieve with Circular Landscapes.
