Let's learn from ongoing practices to guide future changes. By building a common knowledge base we make the complex circular transition more tangible.


Learning is more than just collecting as many practices as possible. The beating heart of a continuous learning process is the observing and analyzing of these practices in the (city) port area, the follow up on the dynamics and making insights transferable and applicable elsewhere. Mapping good practices helps to generate new insights into the functioning of projects here and now as into the new challenges and opportunities that need to be addressed in the future.
