AMS Peri-Urban Living Lab (PULL) workshop Amsterdam Metropolitan Area

REPAiRREsource Management in Peri-urban Areas: Going Beyond Urban Metabolism

Developing eco-innovative solutions to boost the circular economy of the AMA (Amsterdam Metropolitan Area) is the aim of the upcoming PULL workshop organised by the TU Delft and AMS Institute. As an innovative thinker and doer, we are happy to invite you to participate in this workshop!

This workshop has 3 different sessions, which will focus on developing eco-innovative solutions for a range of challenges to developing a circular economy in the AMA, namely 1) wastescapes (Schiphol area, Amsterdam harbour area), 2) food waste, and 3) construction and demolition waste.

The results from this workshop will be shared with the participants, and will be used as input for the next steps of the REPAiR research. We will develop these results to a more detailed level, aiming at operationalizing the solutions to such a level that they can be tested within the Geodesign Decision Support Environment and then further implemented in practice.

This workshop is part of the research project REPAiR, conducted by TU Delft in collaboration with seventeen national and international partners. REPAiR (http://h2020repair.eu) aims to provide local and regional authorities with an innovative Geodesign Decision Support Environment (GDSE) to create integrated, place-based eco-innovative spatial development strategies promoting the perspective of waste as a resource. Eco-innovative strategies will be co-developed, modelled and assessed based on life cycle thinking, ensuring that all life cycle stages are considered, while avoiding burden shifting.

Innovative thinkers are warmly invited to join the workshop. Please email Virpi.Heybroek@ams-institute.org when you would like to join this event.
