    Almere 2.0

    Flevo Campus is made possible by Almere 2.0. Those who pay attention, can see that the Randstad is on the move. The housing market is booming, the economy growing and jobs and economic activity are on the rise. A lot of people are looking for a place to live in the Noordvleugel (Northern wing) of the Randstad. Almere wants to contribute and will therefore keep growing over the coming years. However, we do much more than building houses alone. With the Almere 2.0 programme, we’re investing in the quality of the city. A city that makes its residents proud while enjoying life and developing to their full potential. A city where companies like to settle and visitors are pleasantly surprised. This is a collaborative effort between the Gemeente Almere (Almere Municipality), Provincie Flevoland (Flevoland Province) and Het Rijk (central Dutch government).

As everyone has ideas and knowledge about how to achieve a better city, our mission is to create practical knowledge together for a place to love.
