The Amsterdam Agenda
12 Good Ideas for the Future of Cities
From climate change to migration, all across the world cities are having to come to terms with contemporary challenges for which there are few easy answers. The Amsterdam Agenda invites 12 urban thinkers to share their knowledge, insights, and vision for the future of cities in light of today’s ongoing transformations. Be it the repercussions of over-tourism, alternative forms of civic engagement, or incorporating new technologies into existing infrastructure, these are urgent issues with global impact.
Based on a 2018 lecture series at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, The Amsterdam Agenda brings together the views of today’s brightest names from the fields of architecture, planning, activism, and more.
Initiated by Daan Roggeveen (MORE Architecture) and Michiel Hulshof (Tertium), the pair co-wrote the acclaimed How the City Moved to Mr Sun examining China’s new megacities.
