Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A one stop shop to make heritage more sustainable.
Making heritage more sustainable can lead to possibly conflicting situations between for instance interventions on windows, walls, putting solar panels on the roof of a building and its heritage values. To prevent conflicting situations and better inform on sustainable solutions applicable to cultural heritage, the city of Amsterdam created a digital counter accessible to all.
By giving information about the buildings in protected heritage areas, the Counter for Heritage and Sustainability facilitates sustainable initiatives from residents and organisations on cultural heritage. It also provides booklets and handouts translating sustainability and heritage policies into easily digestible information for locals.
