Who we are

Rotterdamse Dakendagen aim to show how rooftops can contribute to a healthy, lively, inclusive, attractive and resilient city. We do this by organising a festival where all residents and visitors of the city are welcome in its rooftop landscape.

We see the inner-city of Rotterdam as an open laboratory, where we show inspiring examples, investigate the potential of the Rotterdam rooftop landscape in an appealing way and reflect on the im(possibilities) of roofs. We strive to serve as an international example when it comes to the opportunities of rooftop use by organising innovative and striking projects on the rooftops. To serve as a source of inspiration and a driving force; with temporary interventions, sustainable projects and by sharing knowledge.
