Board and partners
Vzw Kempens Landschap was founded in 1997 partly by way of implementing a provincial policy agreement. Antwerp provincial authorities are represented on the board of the not-for-profit Kempens Landschap through the appointment of two members of the executive as co-chairman. Likewise, through the board no fewer than 65 town councils are involved in our landscape organization as full partners. They have pledged to pay 20% of the purchase cost of any assets in their municipality and so are ‘co-owners’.
The organization strives in a variety of different ways to activate and mobilize government bodies, the business world and individuals across all strata of society in matters relating to the conservation of the landscape as authentic and irreplaceable heritage.
