Jan will discuss the possible sustainable plans a city could use as a response to climate change and the lack of space due to overpopulation. Taking the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk and Rooftop Catalogue as examples to center the discussion around the undeveloped areas of the city, such as the rooftops and waterways.
