What is happening in the area of sustainability and transitions? How will the city remain connected with the port, which is moving further and further away, and where fewer and fewer people earn their living?
Speakers are Boris Hocks(Generation Energy), Carline Borest(Port of Rotterdam), Carola Hein (FuturePortCities) and Maud van den Beuken (visual artist). With Generation Energy, Boris Hocks investigates the spatial effect of the energy transition: what does it mean for our landscape to be climate neutral by 2050? Carline Borest is looking at the possible future scenarios for the port of Rotterdam from the Port of Rotterdam Authority. What will the city and country look like if electricity is generated locally from green sources? And what does that mean for the port? Carola Hein indicates the cultural significance of the port for Rotterdam and Maud van den Beuken looks with her project Groot Water at the river Maas and the relationship we have as a city with the river. How did Rotterdam become a port city, and what does it actually mean to be a port city?
