Teken het manifest voor een Burgerberaad Klimaat & Milieu

Featured image

Begin dit jaar is het ‘Manifest Burgerberaad Klimaat en Milieu’ gelanceerd. Een coalitie van burgers en organisaties roept de politiek op een ambitieus burgerberaad in te stellen, waarin burgers maatregelen bedenken om de klimaatcrisis te bestrijden en biodiversiteitsverlies tegen te gaan. Ik ondersteun dit manifest van harte omdat ik erin geloof dat een grotere betrokkenheid van burgers bij deze grote uitdaging leidt tot betere en eerlijkere oplossingen. Jij ook? Teken het manifest!

De opwarming van de aarde raakt alles en iedereen. Om de aarde leefbaar te houden zijn snel grote veranderingen nodig. De Nederlandse overheid (gemeenten, provincies en Rijk) lijken nog onvoldoende in staat om tot een toereikende, integrale aanpak van de klimaatcrisis te komen. Een belangrijke barrière is dat moeilijke keuzes (bijvoorbeeld rondom de plaatsing van windmolens of het inperken van de intensieve landbouw) uit de weg worden gegaan. Ook worden burgers onvoldoende en vaak veel te laat betrokken bij de voorgestelde oplossingen, wat leidt tot vertraging en weerstand.

Waarom een burgerberaad?
Een burgerberaad is een onafhankelijk georganiseerde werkwijze waarbij een gelote dwarsdoorsnede van de Nederlandse bevolking zich laat informeren door experts en belanghebbenden. Vrij van lobby en verkiezingsdruk ontwikkelen zij maatregelen die eerlijk en toereikend zijn, en bovendien gesteund worden door de samenleving. Onder andere dit rapport van de OECD laat zien dat deze democratische methode in het buitenland goed werkt om hete hangijzers aan te pakken. Een belangrijke voorwaarde is dat het proces transparant wordt ingericht.

Amsterdam Trade and Innovate en PIM Noord-Holland (Programma Investeringsgereed Innovatief MKB Noord-Holland) willen ondernemers helpen dit goed en succesvol aan te pakken. Ben jij een MKB-er in de MRA die actief is op de thema's van smartcity? Vul dan de enquête in zodat ons aanbod goed aansluit bij wat jij nodig hebt.

Looking for smart grids or smart buildings internship opportunities

For my master degree in engineering, I am looking for an internship in the smart grids or smart buildings fields. It will start in April 2021 and last 4 to 5 months. My subjects of study are energy (electricity, Heat transfer, renewable energies) and IT (programming, embedded systems, IOT). I want to use my skills to help your community on any project related to energy. I'm particularly interested in programming and IOT.
Currently, I'm working on a smart street light network project. The idea is to design energy efficient street lights that communicate with one another and prevent night time disorders by recording any noise over a given threshold and pushing the data to a supervisor.
Feel free to contact me if you need any further informations.
Warm regards,
Aymeric

Master's thesis: Looking for interviewees involved in Schoonschip project

Greetings everyone, my name is Rhea and i am pursuing my master's in Urban Management and Development.
I am currently writing my thesis on decentralised smart energy systems accelerating neighbourhood circularity (through the case of Schoonschip, Amsterdam), aiming for an integrated result in the energy and circularity transition as well as to fill the gap in literature about neighbourhood circularity.
Consequently, I am looking to interview people who were involved in the Schoonschip project, including experts, project developers, community members, municipality etc. The interview would be focusing on conditions such as technological, economic, institutional, socio-cultural and environmental (depending on the interviewee's background) associated with the development of Schoonschip and its energy systems. Your valuable insights will be fully acknowledged in the final publication.

Kindly contact me if you are willing to contribute to my research or if you know someone who could help me out. I would be grateful! Thanks in advance!

How valuable is energy to you?

Hello! I’m Mees, at the moment I’m conducting a research on sustainable energy initiated by Johan Cruijff ArenA and Amsterdam Smart City.

Are you interested in sustainable energy? Please fill in this survey, it would help my research enormously! Thank you in advance! All your replies will be treated confidential. Results will be shared on this platform.

USA school teacher: opportunities to learn about Dutch climate mitigation/adaptation strategies Jun28-July7

Hello! I'm hoping (at the very last minute) to connect with some folks who might be interested in sharing their work with me through a brief informal tour or interview while I'm here in the Netherlands for the next 8 or 9 days. I'm here with the help of a small, self directed grant to develop a unit of study for my students in Chicago that will inspire them to better understand climate change as a global issue with which they can engage in creative ways in their local context. I'm interested in more or less any and all work happening around Amsterdam (or Utrecht, where I'll be from July 3-July 5, or Wageningen, July 5- July 7) that relates to the effects of climate change or mitigation/adaptation strategies. This could include any climate relevant public or private work in the electricity, transportation, building, industrial, agricultural, tech, or education sectors. For example, if you are involved with a start up that does circular economy work that reduces emissions, have a perspective to share on regional transportation, know something about zero emission architecture, or work in education and are interested in developing collaborations in terms of sustainability/climate curriculum, I'm interested in hearing from you and (in an ideal world) chatting for 30 minutes or an hour. My students are typically low income, racial minority teenagers who I believe need to be empowered to make the future as much as their economically well off and culturally "mainstream" peers. Most of my students are also soon to be voting eligible citizens of the USA, which seems relevant. Anyway, I appreciate you considering my vague request! I am of course thrilled about the wealth of resources available through Smart City Amsterdam (including the very cool new Amsterdam Innovation Tour app), and I've booked, for example, a standard tour on Friday through architour. But unfortunately my dates of travel did not align with WeMakeTheCity, the ASC Open House is not happening this Friday, and many of the other tour options are out of my price range as an individual traveling on a small grant. Thanks for any and all input. Cheers!
