City walk: recharge and reconnect to nature

Leave your screens and the week behind, and join us for sensory walk that allows you to discover your surroundings with new eyes and energy on Friday September 10. International landscape architecture bureau LAND, Futuribile, Aalborg University and Waag take you on a city walk though the urban ecological landscape of the Amsterdam Science Park.


15:00-17:00 hrs - for workers and students of the Amsterdam Science Park
17:30: 19:30 hrs - for inhabitants living in and around the Amsterdam Science Park

What are we going to do

Over the course of two hours we will pass five different stations in the environment where we will actively connect with our surroundings and senses.

We will use observation, awareness, movement, making and imaging as ways to capture and share our experiences together. A perfect moment to meet fellow Science Park users and inhabitants in an informal setting and discover your familiar surroundings with new eyes and energy. Let’s recharge and reconnect with nature together!
