Vishon Kòrsou

Vishon Kòrsou is: looking ahead and plan which direction we want to take.

Vishon Kòrsou is looking ahead for Curaçao, to decide the direction we want to take. It offers e realistic view of our future, and covers a period of 10 to 15 years in which the whole community will help to realize the process.

Why Vishon Kòrsou

To improve things, we need change. To change we need to take decisions. To take the decisions that suit us best we need to look ahead. Looking ahead is developing a vision.
