Week of resilience at the special education primary school De Bonte Vlinder Segbroek. Strong, resilient and resilient as a person and city! How do you achieve that?

Cities grow. By 2050, 70% of the world's population will live in cities (source: UN). But cities around the world increasingly face complex and difficult-to-solve challenges. Think of: climate change, digital transformation, loneliness, rising energy costs and inequality. These challenges are not only complex, but also reinforce each other. This complicates the solution. But all these problems, how do they relate to each other? And how do we ensure that we can still enjoy living in the city in the future? To achieve this, we need to create a city that is resilient and resilient. With residents who are strong, resilient and resilient. A city that can take a beating, but can also adapt when necessary. The municipality's Resilience team started a trial in January together with the residents, school and care home of Noorderbeekdwarsstraat. How do you make a street more resilient? What works, and what doesn't?

There is also a primary school for special education in Noorderbeekdwarsstraat. Together with the school and its students, the generation of tomorrow, we are organizing a week in which we really get to work with the students to increase the resilience and resilience of themselves, the school and the city! The students hear in the news every day that we have to get rid of gas and live more sustainably… but how? Or that we as a city have to protect ourselves against the risk of heat and flooding… but how? And that we must be prepared for emergencies… but how?

We will work with various partners and institutions to provide concrete answers to these questions. We learn by doing!

The municipality's Resilience program is part of a large international network that includes cities such as New York, Rotterdam, Jakarta, Kyoto, Cape Town and The Hague. Together they think about the future of cities. And how we can realize a resilient future.

De Bonte Vlinder primary school is a special education primary school for groups 7 and 8. There are also two highly gifted classes in the school. De Bonte Vlinder is a perfect example of a school with talented children who want to learn by doing!

Police at school. It was an exciting morning! The students were enthusiastic and had many stories about locks and security in their home situation. They have promised to read the leaflet 'Chat tricks, don't fall for it' for grandmothers and grandfathers.
