About Amstelveen Rainproof

It’s raining harder and harder, and our city can’t handle it. Together, we can catch those raindrops and make Amstelveen Rainproof.

Amstelveen Rainproof

Amstelveen Rainproof: that’s you, us and all the people of Amstelveen working together. We share a common goal: to help Amstelveen handle the increasingly frequent downpours. Even better, we want to make better use of the free rainwater that currently flows directly into the drains. The extreme rainstorms cause damage, primarily because the city is increasingly paved in buildings, asphalt and paved gardens – no raindrops can seep through!

Introducing Rainproof initiatives together…

If you add improvements to your house or garden, make them Rainproof. If you’d like to make an even bigger difference, work with others on joint initiatives. Rainproof wants to link citizens, entrepreneurs, knowledge workers and public servants in ongoing projects and new initiatives. When we work together, we can transform Amstelveen into a city that uses smart solutions to make the best of heavy rainfall.

…that make the difference.

The following suggestions offer tangible tips for what you can do – as a local resident or a professional. Visit Rainproof.nl for a comprehensive overview. If you have an idea, story or other contribution for Rainproofing your city, let us know! We’d be happy to link you to other Rainproof locals.

Together, we are Amstelveen Rainproof
