ROEF showcases the city’s highest potential, because roofs in proper use offer opportunities for climate adaptation, sustainable energy and crowd management. The Amsterdam roofscape is 12 km2 in size, more than 25 times of its iconic Vondelpark. The future of the Amsterdam roofscape according to ROEF: to transform it into the largest public rooftop park in the Netherlands, connecting separate rooftops through air bridges. In the meantime, the interconnectivity of the ECRN ensures the benefit of international inspiration for Amsterdam developments and sharing ROEF’s local knowledge with European counterparts.
