sustainable travel in amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

As the first city in the world to pursue the Doughnut Economics model – which emphasizes local needs within planetary boundaries – sustainability is intrinsic to Amsterdam. Despite its green credentials however, Amsterdam struggles with overtourism and irresponsible travel behavior. To make better choices on your next trip to the city, explore on foot or opt for low carbon transport across its 500 km of cycling paths, cruise on an electric boat on its canals, venture into neighborhoods outside the city centre, indulge your taste buds at innovative plant-to-plate restaurants, and opt for upcycled, ethical, community-supportive shopping:
