Horizon + connects nature and open space

In addition to the development of gateways, Horizon+ will also create nature connections that will fan out through the surrounding municipalities, like green foothills from the forest. In this way, different nature areas will be better connected, both to each other and to the core of the forest. For many plants and animals, these connections are of undeniable importance. Many species face highly fragmented habitats.
The nature connections are necessary for these plants and animals to find their way to each other and ensure their survival. Horizon+ is aiming for robust, multifunctional green belts that combine diverse landscape functions. Particular attention will be paid to our Flemish Brabant ‘cherished neighbours’. These are species that depend on specific habitats and that could use some support.
