How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City?
The accessibility of learning environments in the broad sense is crucial for the empowerment of vulnerable citizens and the future career opportunities of children. Improving the resilience of residents in vulnerable urban neighbourhoods, like Bospolder Tussendijken (BoTu), requires a local network of places with a mix of functions to meet, learn, make, play and work. Transforming natural meeting places, like the Visserijplein in the heart of BoTu, into such a multifunctional ‘hub’ ensures that these new interaction milieus are deeply rooted in the daily life of residents.
