Manifesto for a Wild Amsterdam

The Delta Program for Biodiversity was presented last Wednesday, December 19th: The Dutch strategy to work on the restoration of our nature.  Of course, Amsterdam can not stay behind. Some parties joined in the initiative for an Amsterdam chapter in the Delta Plan. In the spring of 2019, a broad coalition of involved organizations from urban planning and nature development will gather around a “Manifesto for a Wild Amsterdam”.

In recent years Amsterdam has become an escape hill for plants and animals, but at the same time we are losing more and more nature in the city. What if we say that Amsterdam does not have 800,000 but many billions of inhabitants? What if WE is not just about people, but is also being built for plants and animals in new Amsterdam? What if we see Amsterdam as a inhabited nature reserve instead of a city with public gardens?

We would like to build a rich city with you. You can download the announcement in the link (NL): 20181221_fourpager biodiversAmsterdam
