By empowering more of our citizens to participate, to be productive, to take the lead and to innovate we are building the foundations for a future that is inclusive, prosperous and sustainable.
Lasting societal change and real prosperity must be inclusive. Rotterdam has made a huge effort in ensuring the fruits or our labour are shared fairly. In the past years, the number of people relying on social benefits dropped significantly, final test scores in high school improved and the number of dropouts decreased. These are bigger societal improvements than we've witnessed ever before.
