Inspiration session 'Working together for a resilient The Hague' Noorderbeekdwarsstraat as an example for resilience and resilience

In the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat, residents, the police, a school and the municipality set to work with resilience. On June 27, we will tell about the first results of this experiment and discuss the results together on the basis of a number of questions. What's going well? What could be better? How do we work together more effectively? And can we see this experiment as an example for other projects in The Hague?

The meeting starts with a short introduction and a presentation of the first results. Then residents share their experiences of the past six months: what did they notice from the experiment, what positive changes did they notice in their street and what did they encounter? Various residents of the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat, Huib de Jong of the Segbroek police, Priscilla Vis of primary school de Bonte Vlinder, the Chief Resilience Officer and Jesse van Velzen of the Resilience program of the Municipality of The Hague share experiences from their own perspective. The speakers then ask the participants questions and these are discussed together. We also address the question: Is the working method in the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat a model for the entire city and how do we ensure a resilient and resilient The Hague together? We will end the evening with a drink.

Resilient city behind the dunes
Resilience is being able to avoid setbacks as much as possible and, if things do go wrong, overcome these setbacks and come out stronger. Everyone contributes to this in their own way. For example, residents provide a fire extinguisher in the house, or candles if the power goes out. The municipality must ensure that the street does not flood during heavy rain showers.

But to tackle the major challenges, such as climate change, rising energy prices, loneliness and digital developments, we also have to work well together. Then we can better design streets and neighborhoods to meet these major challenges and the wishes of the users: residents, police, schools, municipality and many other parties.
