We’re experiencing increasingly extreme weather. Longer periods of drought are alternated by large amount of rain in a short period of time. During the dry periods, the city feels muggy and during heavy rainfall in combination with a lot of paving, tarmac and tiles, the sewerage can’t process the large quantity of water.
How can streets and neigbourhoods accommodate more extreme weather conditions, also in the future? And how can we make sure to have enough water during long periods of drought?
This makes the city more vulnerable which affects us all: civilians, companies and governments. That’s why government bodies, entrepreneurs and knowledge institutions are searching for new, practical and applicable solutions to make the city future resistant by limiting problems and damage caused by water and increasing the quality of life.
At The Green Village, they can test, improve and demonstrate their innovation in an environment exempt of standard rules and regulations. By doing so in an early stage, we can learn lessons faster and scale up to large-scale application.
