The icon of Rotterdam's reconstruction, the national monument De Doelen, is being radically preserved as part of the international 7 Square Endeavour project. The mission of this international preservation initiative is to make the environment ready for the future. The Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam is the first test case in a series of 7 locations worldwide. The adverse effects of urbanization such as pollution, heat stress and flooding must be counteracted. The area must be 100% climate neutral by 2030.
