About Kempens Landschap

Kempens Landschap is a Flemish non-profit  organization that aims to protect valuable landscapes in the province of Antwerp. Founded in 1997 on the initiative of the provincial government and some 40 local municipalities, Kempens Landschap is now active in 65 communities. The organization safeguards landscapes mostly by purchasing and managing valuable natural and cultural sites. In Flanders Kempens Landschap is unique since it is neither a nature nor heritage organization but uses a multidisciplinary and integral approach towards landscape. Nature, recreation, agriculture and culture are our main themes. In 2014 we won the European Prize for Cultural Heritage or Europa Nostra Award in the category ‘dedicated service’. Moreover we also received the Grand Prix within this category.
