The brochure is built around the Flemish vision for 2050, a vision that lies at the heart of the Flemish Strategy for Sustainable Development. The vision is divided into a number of major systems, which sometimes overlap: the system of building and housing, those of materials, energy, food, health, mobility and that of knowledge and learning. Socio- cultural, economic, ecological, international and institutional dimensions are also essential. At the core of each system is the long-term vision for 2050. This may seem remote, but a number of specific examples, in Flanders and elsewhere, show that it is already being realized now. In addition, there are visionary quotes, a view of the future and a retrospect of life as it was fifty years ago. Finally, the brochure provides an overview of the Flemish Strategy for Sustainable Development.
