Pioniers in de stad [Pioneers in the city] is a Dutch-language publication on the manifold grassroots initiatives in the city of Amsterdam. These projects reflect a changing consciousness and responsibility of entrepreneurs and citizens towards their surroundings. Not only do these local cooperations influence the neighbourhoods in a constructive way, they also change the relationship between citizens, public authorities and social organizations.

The book gives a hands-on overview of many projects in the city, but also tries to give local authorities an inspiring insight on how citizens solve problems in a creative way.

Chapters with many city projects, centred around: community building; real estate and area development; activating local residents; entrepreneurial models. back
