Amsterdam is a fast-growing city. In order to create a healthy, attractive and future-proof living environment for people and animals, ecofriendly development must be taken into careful consideration. In Amsterdam, rebuilding banks and quays is a current issue and at least 600 km of quays are scheduled to be restored. Now is the time to design and implement an eco-friendly approach. There are various possibilities to create an eco-friendly environment and to improve the marine life in the canals and near the banks and quays. What kind of measures and projects are feasible in Amsterdam?

De onderzoeksvraag is:
