This year the entire Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is all about urgent urban planner issues and solutions with regard to making the city more livable, safe, fair, sustainable and accessible. These are the main topics during WeMakeThe.City, which is a festival that will take place from 17 to 23 June 2019. During these days, expeditions and photo exhibitions are being held in various parts of Amsterdam and there are going to be workshops about how unique products can be reused.
Of course, this festival has attention for plastic-waste: ‘Let’s Get Serious About Plastic’ is a conference which is going to take place the 20th of June. During this conference there will be many different speakers, who are going to talk about the causes and consequences of plastic waste, the plastic revolution, and finally, lots of innovative startups are going to pitch about how they are going to adjust the big plastic problems. After these pitches, there will be a tour along plastic initiatives in Amsterdam who engage in plastic reuse.
