Vital Cities and Citizens publishes fourth policy brief: Resilient communities and the role of local government

Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens (VCC) has published a fourth policy brief within the Rotterdams Impactstudy COVID-19. This policy brief zooms in on the need for a paradigm shift in the way Rotterdam is managed.

Covid-19 demands a paradigm shift in the way Rotterdam is managed. Infrastructure-led development is not enough, as it (1) can not deal with social problems such as loneliness; (2) does not allow for enough flexibility to deal with uncertainty; and (3) does not unleash innovation and creativity. Rotterdam city council realises the need for a paradigm shift. In this policy paper dr. Mike Duijn, prof.dr. Jurian Edelenbos, Daniela Ochoa Peralta en dr. Jan Fransen outline an adaptive, bottom-up and resilient alternative. Besides stating what can be done, it also states what should not be done.
