The Right to Challenge – ‘uitdaagrecht’ in Dutch – is one of the best-known examples of modern citizen participation. The city of Amsterdam encourages citizens to take ownership of their own neighbourhood, and the Zero Waste Lab at Plein 40-45 is the first officially successful Right to Challenge project in the city. What has been achieved so far, what challenges remain, and how can urban collective action be improved? We will share the lessons learned from working with Right to Challenge in Amsterdam. A collaboration between the Municipality of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
Pakhuis de Zwijger broadcasts daily online programs via LIVECAST. You can also join the conversation via the Zoom url in your reservation mail.
