A 24-hour city is a densely populated area where business, trade and culture live around the clock. The city's character and use changes throughout the 24-hour cycle. How can we activate and experience the city in new ways at all hours of the day in a safe and profitable way?
The 24-hour city can contribute to more jobs, more activity, generate economic growth and investment. However, it can also have disadvantages related to the population's health, i.e. alcohol consumption, noise and stress.
In conversation with the former night mayor of Amsterdam, Mirik Milan, OMA's event will focus on issues such as the night economy, safety, inclusion, creativity, and night owls. Aiming to provide broad perspectives on how we include and plan the night hours in new ways.

En 24-timers by er et tett befolket område hvor næringsliv, handel og kultur lever gjennom døgnet. Men byens karakter og vår bruk av den endrer seg gjennom døgnet. Hvordan kan vi aktivere og bruke byen på nye måter i alle døgnets timer på en god måte?
24-timers byen kan bidra til flere arbeidsplasser, mer aktivitet og generere økonomisk vekst og investeringer, men det kan også ha ulemper blant annet knyttet til befolkningens helse, f.eks knyttet til alkoholforbruk, støy og stress.
I samtale med tidligere nattordfører i Amsterdam, Mirik Milan, vil OMA sitt arrangement fokusere på hvordan vi kan se på døgnet på nye måter, der spørsmål som nattøkonomi, trygghet og nattugler er i fokus.
