The Mayor’s Manual Podcast taps into solutions that frontrunners and changemakers - from the government, private sector, and knowledge institutes - want to see on every mayor’s manual. In the episodes, we discuss major urban challenges and transitions such as: how do we move toward a circular city, what is the path to a safe digital city, which innovations already exist for our current mobility system, and who will make our city climate-proof?
Special podcast episodes: AMS Conference 'Reinventing the City'
This year, the Mayor’s Manual joined the AMS Conference 'Reinventing the City' to report on innovative insights and document fascinating conversations. During the event, the Mayor's Manual Podcast team created a series of four episodes.
High-tech versus nature-based solutions: either or both?
In this first AMS Conference episode (on Spotify), we zoom in on high-tech versus nature-based solutions. Is one of these 'types of solutions' more likely to accelerate urban transitions? Or can they support each other, and should we seek smart combinations?
Our podcast guests for this topic are Ard van de Kreeke, who combines nature-based and high-tech solutions in his vertical farm Growy, Gabriela Corbera, who aims to accelerate circular transitions through her mixed reality game Circular Play, Pablo van der Lugt, an expert on the topic of nature-based building and biophilic design and Rudy Janssens, a representative for Belgian technology companies who believes strongly in nature-based solutions.
