Ecoshape is the foundation that carries out the public-private Building with Nature innovation programme. Within Ecoshape contractors, engineering companies, research institutions, governments and NGOs work together to develop and spread knowledge about Building with Nature.

General information:

  • Ecoshape develops knowledge through pilot projects. By testing theories in practice, we expand our knowledge base. In doing so we gain knowledge about specific systems, so that we can make our knowledge applicable for other locations with comparable systems. Knowing the local system is key to designing a sustainable solution.

  • In recent years partners within Ecoshape have already built up a wealth of knowledge and experience. This knowledge is captured in reports on the project pages of Ecoshape's website that also contains the Building with Nature Design Guidelines.

The knowledge Ecoshape developes is freely available.
