The Beatrixgebouw of the Royal Jaarbeurs is the beating heart of the Future Green City World Congress. In the imposing Beatrix Theatre, we welcome participants for the opening programme and do we schedule leading speakers and case studies on inspiring green world cities. The adjacent Jaarbeurs Meet Up will be transformed into a green congress venue. In the many halls, participants will meet and inspire each other during workshops, debates, master classes, film screenings, science labs and many more substantive sessions.
The Railway Museum
The Railway Museum (or Spoorwegmuseum) is not just another museum. It is a fascinating place where you will discover how the train changed the world. With a real-life train station, a theatre, exciting attractions and with changing exhibitions, it is the perfect place for the opening night of the Future Green City World Congress.
Park Lepelenburg in the centre of Utrecht was created by the famous landscape architect Zocher. This park on a former stronghold is a favourite of many a Utrechtian. They listen to music from the bandstand, play with their children in the playground or relax in the shade of a tree in the deck chairs. In this historic park on the canals dating from 1860, you can sing along to your heart’s content with our street performers on Wednesday evening, 25 September, and order drinks and Dutch tapas from various food trucks with fellow participants.
