‘Rethinking Urban Growth’

‘Rethinking Urban Growth’

Houthaven 10/11/2018

Op 16 januari organiseert de Praktijkleerstoel Gebiedsontwikkeling i.s.m. de Universiteit van Amsterdam een debatavond over stedelijke verdichting als onderdeel van de sLIM leergang 2019 (Engelstalig)

Exploring new approaches to urbanisation in The Netherlands

Today, Dutch cities and regions are faced with important dilemmas. One is between their ambition to compete, prosper and offer a place for ever more inhabitants while maintaining high standards of social and environmental quality. Indeed, population growth, densification and economic wealth seem to be increasingly at odds with the health and happiness of inhabitants. Are their limits to urban growth and density in The Netherlands? What does it mean ‘to grow’ for large urban agglomerations? And what qualities and values really matter when we plan for growth? Experts from science and (inter)national practice will explore these questions with the audience.
