Examining best practices in employment

REVIT

Project

REVIT

The Rotterdam Port increases its distance to the city. In 2012, the newest addition to the harbour grounds - Maasvlakte 2 - will be taken into effect. The centre of harbour activities and the city, at that point, will be over 60 km apart. Over time, smaller percentages of the harbour labour force actually live in Rotterdam. At present, out of 75.000 only 15.000 live in Rotterdam.
The revitalisation strategy incorporates a number of activities to connect the city and its port.

City Stewards

Project

City Stewards

The city of Rotterdam is a city that is worked in and on. Ambitions are high: socially as well as economically. Still, the city is to remain accessible. The inhabitants, the entrepreneurs and the many (international) visitors expect no less.
For the Rotterdam youth this is even more important. Their future begins in the city.
