Thinktank session features Students from Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions

Our Thinktank Governance of Floating Cities had an inspiring thinktank session with students of the MADE(Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering) master students at the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) presented their paper on Floating Cities:

“Our research paper presents that climate change is one of the most important socio-ecological issues of the 21st century. The floating city is seen as one of the solutions for the metropolitan challenges that arise from climate change; however, this solution comes with its own urban challenges. Therefore, this paper aimed to develop an integral problem definition of challenges in the establishment of the floating city by looking into three dimensions: technical challenges, social challenges, and governing challenges. The interviews we conducted was key to approach the research questions.”
