Amsterdam Talks #3: How Green is your city?

This summer, A City Made By People is back with Amsterdam Talks, shedding light and gathering insights on the green spaces of our city, with our community.

How Green is Amsterdam? Or better yet, is Amsterdam Green enough? We see an overload of cyclists, an array of parks, and an overall eco-friendly attitude towards daily life in our city. But as true Amsterdammers, are we going to roll-down our sleeves and say we're "green and done"?

For this event, we've invited three speakers from Amsterdam to share with us the stories and passion behind their Green initiatives, and how they came to be.

Join us to find out how Green Amsterdam is as a city, and if it's Green enough.

17th of July, 2019. Doors open at 18.30!

Zoku Amsterdam Rooftop, at Weesperstraat 105, 1018 VN Amsterdam
