MASTERCLASS: SCHIPHOL GROUP

1st round

Schiphol is not the typical city. It brands itself as an AirportCity but it is a city without civilian inhabitants. It is a place of interaction though, interaction between people and organisations and as urbanity can be defined in term of  interactions it is a city. It is a smart city in several aspects. It is measuring its position vis a vis the competition permanently, it optimises its logistic passenger processes, a.o. by measuring customer experience, it is smart by looking for optimising aircraft handling, by looking for ways to reduce pollution and CO2 emissions, by using the latest technologies for buildings.Schiphol can also be seen as a smart city in the way the airport did build its urban form, integrating landside real estate (hotels, offices) with the transportation node (airport, railway station, parking), since the late 1980’s: a genuinely integrated megastructure..

WORKSHOP: PWC

2nd round

Integrating the SDGs into a city’s strategy

During this workshop Nathalie Feitsma (manager smart urban regions at PwC) and Gijs Schoutens (sustainability expert at PwC) will take you on a journey through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and focus on the question how cities can use the SDGs to realize a sustainable future.

In 2015 the United Nations established the so-called Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs apply to all countries and set priorities for governments. Megatrends such as demographic change, urbanisation, climate change, inequality, and technological breakthroughs all demand a collective, international response. The SDGs set the agenda to tackle these challenges.

The SDGs are a call for action to local governments and their citizens as well. But where should they start? Which steps can they take to achieve the UN’s Global Goals as quickly as possible? And how and to what extent can new and emerging technologies contribute to this challenge?
