The first event within the line of work ‘Cross-boundary Exchanges’ was the “International Delta Conference Redesigning Deltas—Design for transformative change: evidence, agency, cross-disciplinary knowledge”.
The conference held between June 16th and 18th in the Netherlands counted with the presence of more than 100 invited guests and a programme of national and international keynote speakers from the public, private and academic sectors.
The conference program addressed the current status and future challenges of our deltas, centered on design and design-based approaches to jointly identify these pathways. Convergence Alliance- Resilient Delta, The City of Rotterdam, TU Delft, Deltares, IHE Delft, The Delta Alliance, Wageningen University & Research, the Delta commissioner, and the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency co-hosted the conference.
We are a community of academia, practitioners and policy makers from across the world building this new approach during the Redesigning Deltas International Conference. This conference was a unique opportunity to inspire change and co-create new design-based pathways together.
