150 Year New Waterway conference 13 till 15 October 2022

Nieuws - 18 september 2022 - Webredactie

At a time of major crises, urban planners and designers need to work at the landscape scale to facilitate the intersection of global flows and local spaces especially in urban deltas and port city territories. Ship channels like the New Waterway are key to both global maritime traffic and port development for many decades; they also have a major impact on nearby cities and settlements. Today, these ship channels and the landscapes that host them require radical reconsideration, to meet the need for an energy transition, to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The future of these channels is a key in creating a new balance between economic development and related infrastructures on the one hand, and a sustainable and resilient environment on the other hand. Future strategies need to be based on broad public debate and support. The symposium brings together a diverse group of international and local academics and professionals to discuss initiatives and possibilities for shipping channels and port cities, the challenges and implications for water management, spatial planning and design, and public participation. It sets the stage for much-needed interventions in water-related planning and management worldwide. Join us in the unique setting of the SS Rotterdam in the Rotterdam to engage with an outstanding group of international and national speakers!
