We Make Amsterdam Resilient

Urban Special

The world in which we live is undergoing a rapid transformation towards an increasingly urban environment that is confronted with all kinds of challenges. Our growing cities, characterized by a linear way of consuming high-quality resources, are being confronted with developments such as weather changes, new forms of emerging economies, digitization, globalization, migration, technological innovations and system transitions.

In addition to new opportunities, these continuous developments also entail new risks and uncertainties. Due to the speed, with which these developments take place, it is necessary to think about how we can jointly transform Amsterdam into a resilient city in terms of climate, energy, food, mobility and housing. A transformation that requires close collaboration between companies, government, citizens and knowledge institutes. It is precisely this collaboration that is key to AMS Institute's 'We make Resilient Amsterdam'.

Would like to get inspired and learn more about what Resilience is? And about which ways there are to develop cities more resiliently? And would you like to discover in a creative way how you can contribute to resilience and what is needed to co-create a Resilient Amsterdam?
