Waternet and Amsterdam Municipality are joining forces to address the opportunities given now that many kilometers of quay walls need repair work. A new design of quays and banks can have a positive impact on safety, water quality, experience value, biodiversity and climate adaptation. In addition, many hard banks in the city can be transformed into more nature-friendly shorelines.
Aiming towards a manual for nature-inclusive quays, banks and water features and to exchange knowledge this day collects knowledge and challenges designers to work on a future-proof city.
