In the spring of 2010 the Dutch government will discuss the future of the Afsluitdijk. In anticipation of that, the Sustainability Centre Foundation wants to issue well-considered recommendations about the location, programme and building of the proposed Centre. This competition is therefore being held with the aim of proposing ideas for a World Sustainability Centre Afsluitdijk that can form part of the recommendations made to the Dutch government regarding the future of the Afsluitdijk. The ideas should address the programme, location and accommodation of the World Sustainability Centre Afsluitdijk.
