Mission and vision

Who are we and what do we stand for?
The Heritage, Nature and Landscape Foundation consists of several locations and departments, each with its own identity, (partial) objectives and strengths. What unites the locations and departments is the love and respect for heritage, the awareness that this landscape and heritage has been made (and is still being made) by people. The desire is to preserve this and pass it on to future generations.

What do we want to mean and what are we going for?

  • We want to show young and older residents of the region and tourists how our landscape and built environment - and within it regional crafts and manufacturing - have developed over the centuries and are still developing.
  • We want to preserve and research tangible and intangible traces of the past, present and document them, and publicize them.
  • We want to encourage people to learn from history, from nature and from craftsmanship. And to use that knowledge to deal with their own environment in a sustainable way.
