The creative or sleeping city

07Mar2016 20:00


Moritz Föllmer will participate in the third public debate of EU@Amsterdam at Pakhuis De Zwijger. The theme will be the creative city. Other speakers are Jaap Draaisma and Arnold Reijndorp.

EU@Amsterdam - a City Counsel is a series of public debates focusing on the current and future role of cities in Europe. The series is inspired by the European Union’s Urban Agenda that will be adopted in Amsterdam on 30 May 2016. It aims to contribute to this urban agenda by addressing challenges such as the economic crisis, citizenship, and sustainability that European cities are facing today.

In particular, the series will focus on Dutch cities by discussing themes directly related to their growth, innovation and livability. The series consists of five public debates (in Dutch), each focusing on a particular theme, organized in Pakhuis de Zwijger during the Dutch EU Presidency:

The City: merciful & intolerant (25 January)
Enclaves in the City (15 February)
The creating or sleeping City (7 March)
The vulnerable City (29 March)
The City beyond the state (18 April)

Eu@Amsterdam - a City Counsel is a combined initiative of the UvA Faculties of Humanities and Social and Behavioural Sciences, ACCESS EUROPE, the Centre for Urban Studies and ACUH.
