Nxtcity Amsterdam

Nxtcity Amsterdam

A city is a wonderfully complex environment with a diverse set of challenges. With topics ranging from transportation to energy and from education to the environment, there is a need for a generation of creative problem solvers. By involving young citizens early on, we can benefit from their fresh perspective. We furthermore have a chance of triggering their long-lasting engagement and cooperation for the city of tomorrow. The first edition of NxtCity will be held in Amsterdam at the end of August. After two introductory workshops, teams of high school students will focus for two days on one of the issues of the city. Guided by domain experts and mentors, they will work towards concrete proposals. Real solutions for real problems. Real learning. The registration for NxtCity Amsterdam is open. High schools can now enroll a team, consisting of high school students and a teacher. Furthermore, the organization of NxtCity is currently preparing the event. In collaboration with partners and schools the event is currently being designed. After NxtCity Amsterdam (2015), the ambition is to expand this initiative to multiple cities in the Netherlands and Europe.
