To keep Amsterdam liveable the municipality collaborates with its citizens. On average Amsterdam’s population grows with 10.000 people a year. This small big city has a density of 5065 people per square km, over 180 different nationalities. 19% of the total Dutch GDP is earned in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Between 2015 and 2016, the amount of tourists in Amsterdam increased by 7%. To keep Amsterdam’s 162 canals, monumental centre and residential areas liveable, innovative initiatives are required.

Featured image

Onze leefomgeving is onlosmakelijk verbonden met de digitale wereld. Wilt u weten wat dat betekent voor meer duurzaamheid in de stad van de toekomst? Meldt u zich dan aan voor een webinar ‘Hoe kan digitalisering bijdragen aan een meer duurzame samenleving?’ op dinsdag 20 april.

Dit webinar wordt georganiseerd door de Raad voor de leefomgeving en infrastructuur (Rli), City Deal ‘Een slimme stad, zo doe je dat’ en de Future City Foundation.

Datum en tijd: 20 april, 9.30 – 10.30 uur
Locatie: Online
Deelname: Hier kunt u zich aanmelden. Deelname is gratis

Programma
9.30u Welkom en introductie

10.00u Workshop over maatschappelijke veranderingen door digitalisering

10.30u Afsluiting

In dit advies aan de overheid pleit de Rli ervoor om meer aandacht te hebben voor de veranderingen die digitalisering teweeg brengt in onze fysieke leefomgeving. In haar digitaliseringsbeleid moet de overheid duurzaamheid nadrukkelijker meenemen. Andersom moet het potentieel van digitale technologie beter worden benut voor de duurzaamheidstransities.

In de City deal worden concrete digitale en technologische tools ontwikkeld voor de slimme stad van de toekomst. Daarmee sluit de City deal aan bij het advies van de Rli aan de overheid voor een nieuwe denkwijze over digitalisering.

Sprekers
Prof. dr. Pieter Hooimeijer is voormalig lid van de Rli en voorzitter van de Rli-commissie die het advies voorbereidde. Hij zal de kern van het advies van de Rli toelichten. Jan-Willem Wesselink is hoofdredacteur van het boek ‘Zo bestuur je een slimme stad’ en programma manager van de City Deal ‘Een slimme stad, zo doe je dat’ en de Future City Foundation.

Tech Talent

Explore how to attract, retain and manage tech talents

With the acceleration in digital, the demands on technology — for
speed, flexibility, reliability, security, and value — have radically
increased. For company leaders reviewing how to transform their
organizations, one tricky question is emerging: Where do I find the
people to do all the work? Companies have to hire the best, but that
won’t be enough. They’ll also need to rethink how they reskill and
upskill their people. People are the most important factor for a
company’s growth, especially in its early stages of development. How to
find the right people and how to get a better understanding on how to
create great teams?

SPEAKERS LINE UP:
Dr. Cara Antoine, Managing Director Digital Transformation at IG&H
Bernie van Leeuwen, Managing Director SKF Netherlands
Rik Zuidmeer, Partner and member of the International Leadership Team of Mercuri Urval
Jeffrey Kenens, Partner TK
Moderator: Rens Goudsmit, Head of TK Tech & Attorney at law
