Bovag: the amount of campers in the Netherlands is ‘exploding’. At this moment over 80.000 mobile homes are registered. Since January 2009 the number is up with 36 percent!
When we were looking for temporary interventions on the empty lots on the Cruquiusterrein in the framework of Design as Activator one of the ideas was to set up a camping for mobile homes. Not many locations are available for parking your camper in Amsterdam, but many vacant lots are available. This could make the city attractive for a new target group. The Camper Camping on Cruquius didn’t materialize during last years event but apparently there seems to be a demand. Caroline, maybe we can set up the camp this year?
