At de Ceuvel we host private tours for interested individuals, schools, companies and other parties. Whether you’re an architect, technical engineer, a high school student, or just a generally interested person: there will be someone at de Ceuvel that can explain our story in a way that’s relevant to your background.
The tour covers the story of De Ceuvel. You will learn about sustainability & the circular economy, urban renewal strategies, architecture and communal experimentation and bottom-up development.
Our virtual tour of de Ceuvel was developed during the corona lockdown. Instead of physically visiting our site, we can show you around virtually! The online tour, or webinar, is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Our guide welcomes you in this virtual environment at a time and date of your convenience. Using photos, exclusive videos and illustrations unavailable elsewhere, we tell the story of our unique site. There will be ample time for questions and conversations with the live tour guide.
The virtual tour can be given to a large group of Zoom participants, or as a remote speaker during a physical event. It is suitable in various contexts: as a guest lecture for schools or universities, as a program item of an (online) sustainability conference, as part of a more extensive (company) training course, or in whatever setting you've designed.

Where do the Amsterdam Smart City Programs take place?
Most programs take place, or at least start at, the Smart City Lab on the Marineterrein Innovation District. This is a "small space for big ideas" where we showcase examples of smart city solutions from Amsterdam. The Smart City Experience Lab is also a workplace where Amsterdam Smart City partners meet and collaborate. Groups visiting the Experience Lab can also visit the Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab on their own or as a part of an organized program.

THE YIMBY Yes-In-My-Back-Yard EXPERIENCE! is a bottom-up movement aiming at small scale food growing in cities. THE YIMBY EXPERIENCE! started in 2013 in the city of Arnhem in the Netherlands. The YIMBY EXPERIENCE! is expanding with the support of the city of Arnhem and local sponsors.
Eight years of THE YIMBY EXPERIENCE! shows the empowerment of citizens.: Citizens who started with a small food platform have grown to larger urban food growers. Citizens are more aware of the relation between season and growing and adapt their buying of seasonal food in the supermarket. Citizens gained green growing knowledge and have more green connections in their neighbourhood.

A Waste Transformer is a small-scale anaerobic digester which organisations place on their own site, transforming their own organic waste into green energy (biogas, electricity, heat) and fertilizer. A circular economy around your own waste streams.
A Waste Transformer is the perfect solution for organisations which produce between 600KG and 3600KG of organic waste per day. Normally waste is a cost, with a Waste Transformer it becomes a source of positive (financial) change. It is a high tech installation, but with low tech daily usability. This Waste Transformer in Amsterdam, transforms the organic waste from 10 restaurants, a hotel and micro brewery into green energy. The fertilizer is given back to the park, and the energy created turning the lights on in the restaurants.
A Waste Transformer is suitable in many situations, worldwide. It provides jobs for people with a distance to the labour market, it reduces greatly your waste handling costs, and it creates green energy and fertilizer. Then we have not even discussed the positive stories each Waste Transformer owner can share with their clients and stakeholders.
Upcycling waste, on your own premises.
By the way. A Waste Transformer is a closed systems, which means you don't smell it once it is inside the Transformer. Good energy!
