Amsterdam - Futureproof city

The Czech Green Building Council with the partnership of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Netherlands - Czech Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to a Green Building Club on the topic 

Amsterdam – Futureproof City

The buzz about smart cities is catching up. Few years ago people were talking only about smart phones. Now, through a series of parallel technological global developments, "smart" became the synonym of progress and the concept of smart cities is rising. Amsterdam is among the leaders in this direction.

Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is the innovation platform for a futureproof city. ASC is constantly challenging businesses, residents, the municipality and knowledge institutions to test innovative ideas & solutions for urban issues. This contributes to the liveability of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, promotes sustainable economic growth and helps develop new markets. ASC believes in a liveable city where people can live and work pleasantly.
