Up, Close & Liveable

A global review on social agendas for cities and metropoles

Your environment has a great impact on your life expectancy; where you are born, where you attend school, where you build a network. The City of Amsterdam aims to turn this around and retain a liveable and inclusive city. We invite other (inter)national cities, professionals and interested parties to exchange ideas on the impact of our social challenges on urban development.
