The Board of Government Advisors (CRa) is an independent advisory board on spatial quality for the Dutch central government. Our work deals with the urgent topics of today; from the energy transition to biobased construction and from sustainable mobility to new cultural landscapes and the city.

Our team consists of around 40 people that use design thinking to develop and promote an integrated and innovative approach towards contemporary social and spatial challenges within national projects and policies. We believe that spatial designers can help to create a joint perspective and bring the desired future closer. The combination of looking far into the future and learning from the past allows us to find out what we need to do now. And above all: what we must not do.
