New Democracy: Co-creating the City


Why and how can citizens and communities be engaged in cities to co-create processes to tackle local urban challenges? Listen to the Europeans currently change-making with governments and making a difference. It all starts with co-creation, culture and creativity.

New Democracy: The Cultural Commons in the City


The digital transition didn’t only change the way we share news and data, it changed the way our societies are being organised. Traditional power structures are being challenged: from collective citizen actions as community gardening and setting up energy cooperations, to so-called sharing economy phenomena as AirB’n’B or Uber. Can the commons transform the way public institutions and infrastructures of cities are governed?

New Democracy: Whose Europe Is It?


Solidarity is a hot topic on Europe’s political agenda. Many politicians encourage us to show solidarity and embrace diversity. But how can we embrace diversity within Europe and increase solidarity when the core of many social issues in Europe are rooted in a systemically ignored global history extending far beyond European borders?

New Democracy: Politics of Experimentation


Professor of Human Geography Harriet Bulkeley’s book An Urban Politics of Climate Change looks in detail at how experimentation is a vital part of the governance of climate change. Drawing on examples from cities around the globe – from Berlin to Bangalore – it asks where change comes from. Bulkeley will give an interactive lecture on new forms of governance that arise from experiments. We invite you for a dialogue to connect her insights to Amsterdam based and other Dutch experiments.

New Demcracy: De inclusiviteit van stedelijke innovatie


Op vele plekken in de stad geven Stadmakers invulling aan de publieke zaak. Ze maken een plek om samen te komen, doen ingrepen in de publieke ruimte of organiseren alternatieve publieke dienstverlening. De maatschappelijke initiatieven van Stadmakers zorgen voor dynamiek, energie en gemeenschapsvorming, en doen dat veelal in buurten en wijken waar dat niet vanzelfsprekend aanwezig is. Daar ligt gelijk een kritiek punt. Want in hoeverre sluiten de initiatieven aan bij behoefte en belevingswereld van de bewoners in deze delen van de stad. Deze avond stellen we ons de vraag hoe Stadmakers hun maatschappelijke initiatieven zo inclusief mogelijk kunnen maken. De samenwerking met de gemeente en andere instituties lijkt daarbij vruchtbaar te kunnen zijn.
