Launch WeMakeThe.City Festival!

Yesterday the WeMakeThe.City Festival was launched in Pakhuis de Zwijger, with all stakeholders and deputy mayor Kajsa Ollongren. WeMakeThe.City is a big event between the 20th and 24th of June 2018 in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Amsterdam Smart City is a proud partner in this initiative! Want to contribute? Read on...

First we shape our cities. Then the cities shape us. The place where we live and work has a big influence on us. And we have influence on those exact places. Worldwide more and more people live in cities. The city calls, seduces, connects and makes us creative. But the city can also divide, pollute, tire. The urban area asks us challenging questions. WeMakeThe.City assembles all doers, thinkers and creatives!
