This report summarises Rotterdam's regeneration of its South Bank area, one of The Netherlands' most deprived zones Our Cities for Active Inclusion (CfAI) organised a study visit to Rotterdam on 18-19 September 2012 to promote mutual learning amongst its partners. The study visit looked at the National Programme for Rotterdam South (NPRZ). This programme deals with the regeneration of the South Bank area of the city, one of The Netherlands’ most deprived urban areas. This programme will run until 2030. This new report on the visit summarises the work done so far under the NPRZ, and in particular how different but integrated and coordinated projects were developed for the active inclusion of people living in the seven most disadvantaged districts of the South Bank. The programme centres around Rotterdam’s integrated approach to getting the people living on the South Bank and those furthest from the labour market into employment through enabling talent, developing the economy and regenerating housing and the physical infrastructure. This regeneration is seen as a pressing issue due to the scale of the problem. Rotterdam aims to overcome deep-seated problems faced by a particular neighbourhood by integrating active inclusion strategies with urban area-based policies. A wide range of projects are being implemented or are planned in the neighbourhood. The visit to Rotterdam showed the all-round approach the city is taking to change the situation in the South Bank. One of the striking features is that in addition to the traditional physical regeneration, there is a particular focus on the children and young people of the area. This is reflected in the main policies and activities planned to ensure the long-term benefits of the programme and guarantee a lasting legacy. Visit the link below for the full report.
