Beyond Flying Cars
Day 1: The Basics of Dutch Cycling Urbanism
Day one in Rotterdam explores the historical foundation of Dutch urbanism and cycling, highlighting Rotterdam's unique story. We discuss theory, including land use and transit accessibility, then transition to practical learning with a cycling tour of Rotterdam.
Day 2: Bicycle Infrastrcture - Amsterdam
Day two in Amsterdam demonstrates cycling's role in the city's urban connectivity. Participants observe the multimodal journey enabled by cycling and public transportation, and the reality of car-free neighborhoods. A video storytelling exercise in a selected Amsterdam neighborhood further cements understanding.
Day 3: Making a change
The final day spotlights societal shocks as change drivers, examining Rotterdam's transition and experimentation. We aim to debunk stereotypes and show how to adapt structures and policies to triggers and transitions. The concluding workshop links the topics discussed to your context. A celebration concludes the day!
