Eco3: Doendenken (Reflactions) will be published as a follow up of the book Woorden als Daden

Eco3: Doendenken (Reflactions) is a speculative account of the executed projects, varying from eco-education in primary schools to the complete approach to problems in big cities, focused on sustainability.

Eco3: Doendenken describes and evaluates the scenarios centred around the core themes: health, craftsmanship, sustainability and integration. Consequently, building up the community on a neighbourhood level will have prospects for the entire development of the area and will stand out from a view of sustainability in a physical, social and mental respect (Eco3). Thinking and actions will unite,  starting from a network of theoretical arguments.
