Climate roof and support for plans
Making the city greener is our top priority. Not only to make Amsterdam more livable and pleasant, but also to ensure we have water buffers against extreme rain and enough shade to keep temperatures in the city down. A good support base for our plans is essential: we will not just impose our plans on people. We include residents in big decisions that affect their living environment and make sure that information is clear and accessible.
For every area that we disconnect from gas we will have neighbourhood deliberations so that people that are affected by this change can keep an eye on the process and propose ideas regarding communication, technical approaches, rules, governance and research. This way we look for the most affordable and profitable solutions that best fit a specific situation and area, rather than going with a one-size-fits-all approach.
