Last week, November 15th, we hosted a meeting about the second edition of WeMakeThe.City that is going to take place from 17-23 June 2019. The Marineterrein will be one of the top locations; a great opportunity to show the outside world what is happening here: a place where solutions to societal issues are devised, tested and put into practice. Several community members of the Marineterrein attended the meeting. Next steps will be:
- Formation of a focus group
- Work out the idea of a Design Sprint
- Connect Living Lab focus group to Design Sprint
You can read the full report of the meeting here. The next meeting will take place early December.
