Working with Right to Challenge: Lessons learned in Amsterdam

Policy innovations are an important means to 'reinvent tourism'. The City of Amsterdam has embraced the 'Right to Challenge' as a means for stakeholders to co-create innovative, more creative solutions to municipal challenges. But what does the Right to Challenge mean in practice and (how) does it work? Livestream from Pakhuis de Zwijger, hosted by Hogeschool van Amsterdam and City of Amsterdam.

Policy innovations are an important means to 'reinvent tourism'. For instance: how can we develop more democratic policymaking and co-create innovative solutions, toward a more inclusive and welcoming city for and with visitors,  residents and entrepreneurs? With the 'Right to Challenge', the City of Amsterdam invites stakeholders to propose novel policy arrangements that they think are more efficient than those in place. During this interactive livestream we will share examples and lessons learned from the Right to Challenge in Amsterdam, also including examples from Rotterdam and across Europe. Speakers include action researchers, local and municipal representatives (including alderman (wethouder) Rutger Groot Wassink). The livestream is hosted by Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences* and City of Amsterdam†, from Pakhuis de Zwijger.    


Speakers: Rutger Groot Wassink, Machteld Combé, Redouan Boussaid, Stan Majoor, Joachim Meerkerk, Thijs Harmsen, Ines Balkema
