City of Rotterdam

Part of the GRC European Climate Innovations Study Tour, visited to Rotterdam.  Rotterdam’s newly adopted climate plan, Rotterdam Program on Sustainability and Climate Change 2015 – 2018, provides a comprehensive mitigation and adaptation strategy for the city over the three years and beyond to achieve its goal of becoming 100 percent climate proof by 2025.

Arnoud Molenaar, Chief Resiliency Officer of City of Rotterdam, and Eveline Bronsdijk, Advisor of Sustainability and Communications at the Department of Urban Development of the City of Rotterdam provided an overview of the climate plan.

ZOHO is the Rotterdam maker-district: a living and working area on the outskirts of the city center. It is initiated by and for professionals in design, art, culture, film, music, media, technology, food, architecture and urban planning. The district has become a ‘campus’ for a number of innovative pilot adaptation projects including water squares, green infrastructure, urban farming and green roof projects.
