EMPOWERING SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS FOR A FUTURE-READY

Donation protected
As we gather in Rotterdam for Urban Future 2024, we embark on a journey to amplify the impact of initiatives that are already shaping the city's landscape. Urban Future recognizes that positive change in cities is driven by passionate individuals dedicated to making a difference. With this Legacy Project, we honor the heroes of Rotterdam who tirelessly work towards a socially future-ready city. Together, we provide actionable know-how, inspiration, networks, and skills, empowering these heroes to transform Rotterdam for the better.

PURPOSEFUL APPROACH: BUILDING ON LOCAL INITIATIVES
Urban Future's approach is purpose-driven and immersive. Through 35 field trips, we delve into Rotterdam's local initiatives, seeking opportunities to bolster their efforts and contribute to a socially cohesive, environmentally sustainable, and future-ready society.

SPOTLIGHT ON SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP & INCLUSION
One of the focal points of the Legacy Project is the Social Entrepreneurship & Inclusion Tour. This tour shines a light on three distinct types of social entrepreneurs in Rotterdam, each contributing to the city's social fabric in unique ways. From baked goods to sports equipment, these entrepreneurs, despite facing societal challenges, are driving meaningful change.

FEATURED INITIATIVES:
  • Rotterdamse Munt provides a range of eco-friendly daytime activities, opportunities for green volunteer work, and serves as a Learning Practice Center, specializing in Nature and Environmental Education. Additionally, they cultivate food to support those in need within our local community.
  • Sports is more than just activity; it's about belonging, feeling fit, and staying healthy. Lack of equipment shouldn't hinder participation. Sportspullenbank (Sports Equipment Bank) collects and redistributes second-hand sports gear, ensuring everyone can engage in physical activity and contribute to a sustainable economy.
  • Rotterdamsche Werken is dedicated to empowering disadvantaged youth, including those with disabilities like Down syndrome, autism, or low IQ. We focus on their abilities, offering diverse activities such as crafting, cooking Rotterdamsche Confituur, and operating a coffee bar. Recognizing the lack of opportunities for post-secondary special education graduates, we provide meaningful daytime activities, ensuring everyone has a chance to contribute and thrive.
