Climate, Active, City
The theme of TEDxZwolle is Climate, Active, Cities. Using a wide variety of themes, TEDxZwolle inspires people to think about moving toward sustainable cities of the future. One approach is climate change and the effect of this on our cities. Some say the probability of weather extremes, such as drought and flooding, is increasing.
In the Spatial Adaptation Delta Decision [Deltabeslissing Ruimtelijke Adaptatie of September 2014], it was agreed to structure the urban environment in the Netherlands as climate-resilient and water-robust as possible by 2050. But how do you do that? How do you prevent buildings, infrastructure, nature and our health from being damaged by weather extremes? How do you combine future-proof buildings and functions in a smart way? Another approach is people. Who takes which initiative to make the living environment more attractive and healthier? And how do you ensure successful partnerships in the urban environment?
The second edition of TEDxZwolle will take place in Nieuwe Buitensocieteit Zwolle
