Could you still afford to live in the centre of Rotterdam on an average salary 20 years from now? What will the city look like? Will there be jobs? What will be the future identity of Rotterdam?
Rotterdam’s economy is growing; it’s bursting with startups and initiatives. At the same time, the region is vulnerable and residents are worried that we’re losing everything we’ve achieved. Then there’s the transition to a sustainable future and the ever-changing job market, for which young people have to prepare themselves.
So the city of Rotterdam is busy figuring out what Rotterdam should like in 2037, and on Wednesday night we'll take stock. Come and share your ideas and thoughts on Wednesday evening at 8pm!
