What are the roles of citylabs and citymakers in the broader context of the challenges that are being formulated due to the national and local environmental vision (Nationale & Lokale Omgevingsvisie)? Stimuleringsfonds and Participatory Citymaking are doing research on this topic and will share the recent developments and insights on the 9th of November at the citymaking conference (Stadmakerscongres 2018). Come join us during an interesting discussion and workshop.
In cities like Maastricht and Rotterdam methods are being developed for citylabs as a mechanism of smart governance, using the Smart Urban Lab-kit. The Rotterdam citylab Cool-Zuid is an experimental environment for the local environmental vision of Rotterdam. Complex social and environmental challenges ask for new and smarter ways of working. During the session you can learn about several methods and best practices of citylabs and see how they can contribute to a smart and grounded environmental vision.
