How healthy is Amsterdam?

On 6 April 2017, the City Health Monitor was presented during the event Jij Maakt de Stad! at The Student Hotel in Amsterdam. This monitor shows the current health state of our capital on five themes: food, green, energy, resources and clean air.

The conclusion from this report is: Amsterdam is on the right track, but a lot remains to be done. The traffic in Amsterdam has become cleaner in the past decade, and many more citizens now have solar panels on their roofs, but despite these facts, the air quality is hardly improving and there are not enough green spaces in the city. It is time to act to make Amstrdam a more healthy city to live and work in.

More information about the results of the monitor and the event can be found on the Dutch version of this news item.
