Event description

Description

Our previous July edition of Amsterdam Talks was amazing, what a turn-out of engaged citizens learning more about how green our city really is.

In this month’s August edition, we’ll be digging deep into Amsterdam’s behaviour surrounding our city’s mobility.

● TOPIC
How friendly are the streets of Amsterdam? Are the behaviours of our citizens and neighbours changing? We see an overload of cyclists, new use of mobility, locals and tourists coinciding all the time, and the streets in this ‘Dam' city are getting more packed by the minute.

What's your opinion, how do you like moving through the city?

For this month’s event, we'll be inviting a few speakers from Amsterdam to share their stories and answers to the question.

● WHEN?
21st of August, 2019. Doors open at 18.30!

● WHERE?
Zoku Amsterdam Rooftop, at Weesperstraat 105, 1018 VN Amsterdam

● WHO'S THERE?
Urban planner and PhD candidate at the Urban Cycling Institute, Meredith Glaser, who researches how transportation policies and practices are transferred from one context to another, with a focus on public sector innovation, organizational change, and capacity building.

Co-founder of Geef het Fietspad Terug, Martin Cleaver, with a quest to give Amsterdam’s bicycle paths back to its cyclers, and share insights on how safe it really is to cycle on the streets of this city.
