7 Square Endeavour Rotterdam

Initiator and Process manager since 2015

Making cities future-proof

The aim of the international sustainability programme 7 Square Endeavour is to make cities future-proof. We initiated this multidisciplinary project in 2015 and have been actively involved ever since. The first of seven squares is Schouwburgplein in they city centre of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. On a local level, we are solving global problems such as pollution, heat stress and flooding. These problems are caused by climate change but also by urbanisation; an increasing number of people around the world are living in cities.

We are offering smart and innovative energy solutions in 7 Square Endeavour, which are tested in the buildings on and around Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam. This includes new business models for a circular economy.

We bring all stakeholders together by finding common ground between them. Tools such as ‘place making’ including fun cultural activities are key in this process of change.

These activities are part of
