Background of this competition

A growing world population with a degree of urbanisation, which is expected to reach 60% by 2030, has certainly made it clear that the city needs to go through some essential changes. We simply can’t be a city which merely consumes, we must specifically be one which produces too. A city with a healthy local economy, which generates its own energy and raw materials. Almere wants to be a testing ground, where smart solutions for the cities of tomorrow are tested and implemented. And we want to share the knowledge. On the way to the World Exhibition Floriade in 2022.
