Finch Floating Homes

#Home

This is Finch Floating Homes. As a recap and result of their session ‘Floating homes how to deal with severe floods’ on the CoCreate Future Cities platform, we’ve held an interview with the founder of the global impact startup. Next to our medium articles and the Startup Tuesdays that we organize we’ve started and experimented with our podcast channel. Please check the first one out.

We think Finch Floating Homes is interesting to follow due to the impact that they are creating and the living conditions they optimize. In the overpopulated deltas of the Philippines, people live in areas that experience daily flooding. The demand for safe and affordable housing is immense, yet available dry land is scarce. Their floating home will enable Philippine families to live in an affordable, safe and comfortable home.

Nature policy on the rooftops in Rotterdam

#Rooftops

Rotterdam offers many alternative ways for its inhabitants to experience the city. Those who find walking on the sidewalk a boring activity can plan their next routes on the city's skyline. Adventurous strollers had the possibility to walk from roof to roof and across the Coolsingel. These walkways are placed on high scaffolding at various locations in the city. During this “Rooftop Walk,” you will come across sustainable, innovative, and creative ways to make roofs more inclusive in improving the quality of life in a city.
