The Holland Metropole region is super-connected by car, public transport and by IT.
It takes an average of just 35 minutes to move between the five big Holland Metropole cities, creating one of the most competitive urban regions in the world. The Holland Metropole is also super-connected to other European metropolitan areas, thanks to its central location, excellent air
and road links and its digital infrastructure.
Innovative, sustainable and climate-adaptive development is central to the Holland Metropole strategy. Sustainability is one of Holland Metropole’s top priorities in the real estate challenges it faces. To keep our citizens healthy and ensure a bright future for our city, we have to combat waste and pollution. The city government has therefore set a number of clear goals, such as reducing waste and transitioning to a circular economy.
The future of cities is a collective engagement, with urban transformations being networked, crowd-sourced, and built on fruitful interactive relations. A new urbanism must be open-source, do-it-yourself and self-organised. There is a believe that these models of a networked society will inspire new forms of living, working, inhabiting the urban space.
