Pre-conference WorkshopGeodesignhub for Collaborative Urban Planning
09:00 - 17:00 hrs
We will use geodesign hub (https://www.geodesignhub.com/), an online tool that enables collaborative geodesign processes, to explore challenges and solutions for the Amsterdam Zuidoost district (ZO).
Amsterdam Southeast is home to diverse communities, hosts diverse landuses and houses the Johan Cruijff Arena (which is an important recreational venue attracting waves of visitors several times a week). The area is fast changing and experiencing a boom in construction activity. The workshop will focus on the challenge of balancing the needs of the residents, the commercial interests and the aspirations of the Johan Cruijff Arena.
We will use geospatial tools and methods to understand the scope of actions required to achieve this balance for the next 5-10 years, such as:
- identify alternative landuses / improvements for the publicly owned parcels;
- develop a list of priority projects and policies to pursue for the next two-five years along with the parcels;
- understand the organizational and project management structure of effectively managing this transition, and
- identify most contentious parcels and a build a management strategy for them.
No experience of GIS is required, belief that geospatial information can help us make better decisions is.Maximum number of participants
