Rotterdam want to be a more sustainable city in the future, with the aim to improve the quality of people. To live more sustainable, Rotterdam want to manage the infrastructure in a digital way by using your smartphone. But is this solution as sustainable as we think?

your earring gets warmer. Exactly how your ear gets warmer after a long phone call.
