Rotterdam is a world port city with a powerful skyline and modern architecture. The city has 174 nationalities and operates in an international network. Rotterdam is a city with an open mind and a no-nonsense attitude.
In Rotterdam it is about where you’re going to, not where you come from. Those who want to create something new can find what they want in Rotterdam. Rotterdam is the city of initiative and innovation.
Rotterdam is also direct and unpolished. Young and not finished. Everyone can become an addition and connect with the city. Rotterdam is the city for creativity, contrast and individuality.
A sustainable, energy-efficient Rotterdam, with better air quality. That is what we envisage. The climate challenges set out in the Paris Climate Agreement call for a major energy and economic transition of both city and port. If we and our children want to continue to live comfortably, this will require significant decisions, measures and investments.
