NEMO for adults: visit The Studio at the Marineterrein

The Studio is NEMO’s off-site location at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam: Kattenburgerstraat 5, Building 027A.

A warm house, a quick microwave meal and a mobile phone that allows you to stay connected 24/7 – there’s no shortage of comfort and convenience in our everyday lives. But almost everything would grind to a halt if we were to lose access to one vital source: energy. At the moment, this issue is more relevant than ever, both in politics and among consumers. Our addiction to energy, dependence on fossil fuels and the effects of our energy consumption on climate change arethe focus of NEMO’s new exhibition for adults: <em>Energy Junkies</em>.

In the Energy Junkies exhibition, you get to make the decisions that will determine our future. How would you transform our energy addiction into a healthy habit? Create your own carbon diet, choose the right medicines from the climate pharmacy and dream about a world where we are cured of our energy addiction. The Energy Junkies exhibition opens June 8 2022 at NEMO's Studio, the off-site location for adults at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam.

Take a virtual tour of eco-hub de Ceuvel

Featured image

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 EXPERIENCE!

Featured image

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.

Walk the Knowledge mile

Featured image

We offer a variety of custom made programs, including presentations and personal tours.

The Knowledge Mile is a living lab in Amsterdam that runs from the Amstelplein to the city hall of the municipality of Amsterdam. The Wibautstraat and Weesperstraat are the two main streets at the centre of this area. Both are well known for the urban challenges they face, such as high traffic volumes, flooding and air pollution. The area is also known as a world-class knowledge cluster with the campusses of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the University of Amsterdam and Amsterdam University of Arts.

The Knowledge Mile is a place to establish crucial connections and to achieve productive partnerships, fruitful networks and creative interaction. With a community of 30.000 residents, 60.000 students and almost 200 organisations, hotels, museums, social and municipal institutions together we aim to improve the quality of life in the area, by improving and sharing knowledge and facilitating new connections at our Meetup’s. This is a space to interact and share ideas.

The Knowledge Mile is also a business investment area where all organisations join forces to improve the work/life climate in the field of joint investments in communication/marketing, security, viability and physical movement.
