The Netherlands has 90 billion km driven in NL, of which 50% is business related, with a significant increase in business use, yet not a corresponding increase in productivity of the economy. This means that investing in new roads is NOT the best way to spend public money. How will mobility evolve in the next 20 years.

Future of the City Centre 2025
How will city centre be like in 2025? What could change in the city centre, in a post-crisis environment. Will it stay as a meeting spot, with a business function. Will offices still be the place where people work? City centres in Huston or Detriot city has returned to markert gardering, with the houses abandoned. Or will it have a new lease of life, renewed through urban agriculture, (witness the NYC lightrail project, etc)? What will the city's relevance be when physical meetings come to an end?
