WHAT IF? THE GRAND VISION OF SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
LUNCH IN THE NETWORKING AREA
|SHHH! TIME TO REFLECT
After the morning’s inspirational session, it was time for quiet reflection. In small groups, participants discussed one of the selected visions with their peers. What are the possibilities for realising the vision in their own projects, the challenges and ways to overcome these challenges? A selection of the discussed solutions was shared in the reconvened plenary under the skillful guidance of Mike van der Vijver, Managing Partner of MindMeeting.
Four field trips offered delegates a first-hand investigation of sustainable approaches realised within the region of Amsterdam. While registering, two preferences from the following activities could be listed.
Amsterdam is growing yet again with a new island emerging in the IJmeer lake. Situated adjacent to IJburg, the 82 hectare project - being realised by Boskalis with soft and hard bank protection - will host housing to relieve the city’s rapid population growth and will include a nature area of three hectares.
|DRINKS AND DINNER IN NETWORKING AREA
Back at the Beurs van Berlage, one could mingle with fellow delegates while enjoying drinks and a buffet dinner.
The organisers reserve the right to make adjustments to the schedule as necessary.
