About the project

Since the effects of the urban heat island can result in health issues the city of Amsterdam are looking for possibilities to keep natural grass within the city. As on average the temperatures are 4 degrees Celsius higher in urban areas, and the contribution of grass to counteract this, DVVA was open to innovations that allowed it to still keep the intensively pitches covered with grass and not replace it with artificial turf. The project started at the end of the 2020/2021 season and was finished in august 2021.
