Samen Vooruit, The Indische buurt on the move!
Samen Vooruit is a neighbourhood initiative to further strengthen the Indische Buurt and the power of residents, through co-creation with residents, professionals and the municipality on joint neighbourhood programmes.
A lot is happening and changing in the neighbourhood. It is a dynamic time with changing priorities in the neighbourhood. The administrative system is also changing. This is why it is important that we as a neighbourhood look ahead together and think along with the government.
Samen Vooruit does this by collecting input from residents and from the communities. The neighbourhood perspectives and neighbourhood priorities that result from this are the basis for the Citizens’ Perspectives Memorandum. They are also the guideline for making our wishes and strategy known to the new city council in Amsterdam. Residents are working on various programmes together with administrators and civil servants in the East. Together Vooruit focuses on the following programmes:
– Delta Plan for the fight against poverty in the Indische Buurt
– Local democracy, residents’ initiatives and committed citizens
– Talent development, pedagogical climate, education and culture
– Sustainability, housing and circular economy
We would like to develope and implement these programmes together with you, residents, entrepreneurs, social organisations, civil servants and administrators in the east and with the municipality of Amsterdam. This has to be done in the next four years. Central to this is the further strengthening of the Indische Buurt and the strength of the residents.
Mission: To further strengthen the Indische Buurt and the strength of residents through co-creation with residents, professionals and the municipality in joint neighbourhood programmes.
