Smart Cities Information System FINAL CONFERENCE

Featured image

Smart Cities Information System, SCIS, is a knowledge platform and database collecting solutions and outcomes from (EU funded) Smart City projects.

Join their final event A BEGINNING - NOT THE END on November 4 and 5, 2020 !
The conference will be the highlight and the end of activities under the umbrella of the Smart Cities Marketplace, as well as the answer to the question “What’s next?”.

The online event includes a mixture of plenaries and engaging workshop sessions on several highly relevant topics and an all-day meet & greet with the Smart City Marketplace matchmakers.

The aim of the conference and consolidated matchmaking is (1) to get cities from all over Europe interested in collaborative projects, (2) to trigger further (EU) funded projects, (3) to network with interested cities and stakeholders and (4) to direct the audience towards the Smart Cities Marketplace - as the logical follow-up of SCIS.

Lancering LaBGreen De Bretten Ontwikkelboek - livestream

Featured image

Bewoners, ondernemers en bezoekers hebben het afgelopen jaar samen met de gemeente onderzocht hoe De Bretten er in 2030 uit kan zien, onder de naam LaBGreen De Bretten. Een boek vol ideeën voor De Bretten, het prachtige stuk natuur tussen Sloterdijk en Halfweg. Ideeën die over een periode van ruim een jaar zijn opgehaald bij bewoners, bezoekers en ondernemers, voor de komende 10 jaar.
Hun ideeën zijn samengebracht in een boek. In aanwezigheid van de wethouder Marieke van Doorninck en dagelijks bestuurder Erik Bobeldijk wordt op 14 september het ontwikkelboek LaBGreen De Bretten feestelijk uitgebracht. U kunt meekijken via een livestream met de volgende link: https://vimeo.com/event/276632

Kleine en grote ideeën
De opgehaalde ideeën zijn erg divers. Klein en groot. Enkele voorbeelden: meer activiteiten in De Bretten, meer waterrecreatie, een informatiecentrum met horecagelegenheid. De gemeente gaat de komende jaren kijken welke ideeën haalbaar zijn en hoe we de ideeën kunnen uitvoeren. Sommige ideeën worden al uitgevoerd, zoals (kinder)activiteiten in De Bretten.

Details uitgave ontwikkelboek
Wanneer: 14 september 2020
Tijd: van 16.00 tot 17.00 uur

Startup In Residence Sustainability and Mobility Is Live!

Featured image

Startup in Residence Amsterdam launches a new programme on the themes of sustainability and mobility!

Registration closes on August 11, 2020.

The City of Amsterdam is once again looking for the best start-ups, scale-ups, innovative SMEs, and social entrepreneurs with creative and innovative solutions for the city’s mobility and sustainability issues. Solutions are sought for a wide range of topics, from 'emission-free recreational boats' and 'circular renovation' to 'inclusive mobility' and 'local food logistics'. Like previous years, this edition also has the so-called "wild card challenge" for both themes. If entrepreneurs have good ideas and solutions that are not described in one of the issues, they can register for the wildcard. The complete series of challenges can be found at www.startupinresidence.amsterdam

You can sign up from June 24, 2020 12:00 to August 11, 2020 23:59.

Amsterdam Circular strategy 2020-2025 Live (public version and City Doughnut)

Today the City of Amsterdam published the new Strategy Amsterdam Circular 2020-2025. In the next 5 years this strategy and the related implementation programme will guide us towards a circular capital in 2050. Not only do we want to be sustainable within our city walls and improve local employment. We also want to significantly reduce our footprint which our consumer behaviour causes in other places in the world. Like the depletion of natural recources and CO2-emissions in other countries where our consumer goods are being produced right now. But also to improve working conditions of people who are responsible for the production of our clothes and electronics in that same countries.

Furthermore, the City published a Monitor for the circular economy. A tool which will track and trace (raw) materials from the moment they come into our city till they will be discharged and (hopefully) reused.

With the world's first City Doughnut (developed by Kate Raworth) we will monitor our progress towards a circular city. We will challenge ourselves on ecological and social themes, both local and global.

Amsterdam and Uber reach agreements on safety, independent research, and sustainability

The municipality of Amsterdam and Uber have reached agreements on traffic safety, independent research, data sharing and sustainability, and have laid down these agreements in a ‘Social Charter’.

This is the outcome of the Uber Task Force that was formed at the beginning of the year, following a series of accidents in the Amsterdam area involving chauffeurs who had been driving for Uber at that moment.

Alderman Sharon Dijksma: “The rise of courier services like Uber has rapidly changed the taxi market in recent years, and raised concerns about an uneven playing field on the Amsterdam taxi market. The municipality strives to maintain a level playing field, and it regards the agreements that have been made with Uber as an important step in that direction, together with current national and local regulations and the new municipal taxi policy that is currently under development.

I’d like to thank the task force chair Rob van Holten and all the other participants for all their work, their constructive attitude towards these discussions, and the results they have achieved.”

Traffic safety
One of the agreements was that Uber would join the Traffic Safety Coalition (Verkeersveiligheidscoalitie) before the end of the year. The members of this alliance adhere to collective agreements on safe smartphone use in traffic and work together on other measures to make traffic safer. It was also agreed that Uber would take account of traffic safety in developing its financial incentives for loyal chauffeurs.

Uber plans to implement its existing face verification system in Europe in order to prevent the fraudulent use of chauffeur accounts. The company agreed to periodically inform the municipality on the status of the introduction of this technology in the Netherlands. With regard to sustainability, the deal included an agreement that Uber would make at least 750 emission-free vehicles available through the app by 31 December 2020.

Independent research
It was also agreed that Uber would work with an academic institute (to be determined) to launch an independent study into the job satisfaction, earnings, flexibility and working hours of chauffeurs using the Uber app before the end of the year, with recent research by Oxford University into London chauffeurs serving as an example. Uber has undertaken to discuss the design of this study with the municipality, and to make its outcomes public.
