The municipality of Rotterdam in 2011 organized the first city initiative, an administrative instrument to boost administrative reform and citizen participation.
Rotterdam’s citizens were invited to submit projects that would enliven the city of Rotterdam. Regardless of the college, a board of experts was being assembled to make a selection of the projects submitted. The Board selected 10 entries from which a selection of five finalists was made. After a campaign of one month, the Luchtsingel won 48% of votes.
The air canal is a 390 meter long pedestrian bridge or the Luchtsingel. The air canal is free for everyone.
