ROTTERDAM City Exchange 2022!

Sign up here to take part in this year's EdiCitNet City Exchange with Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Rotterdam is a city that is always on the brink of innovation and evolution. Strategically located in a delta landscape, Rotterdam is home to the largest port in Europe which connects them in more ways than one to rest of the world.

The main goals of the EdiCitNet Living Lab in Rotterdam are to set up a city-wide green initiatives network, supporting green and edible initiatives and providing access to knowledge about local business opportunities and financing models.

Main challenges include streamlining responsibilities at a municipal level and optimising processes and interactions between the municipality and the edible city initiatives.

The Groen010 team have developed a varied and interesting programme for the 3-day city exchange event - with visits to urban gardens, a meeting with the Rotterdam city administration, a speed dating event between administrators and City Team members and bike rides through the city.
