Chapter 14:        Results and Recommendations

Although the Nest! idea has been developed as a specified case study aligned to the municipality of Arnhem in the Netherlands, the implications involved are much broader. In this chapter we spell out what processes are stimulated by the Nest!, what benefits arise and what recommendations can be derived. The Nest! relates to key areas of policy making, including new approaches to governance, migration policies, urban planning as well as social and economic development.

Processes stimulated by the Nest! include making cities family friendly, empowering women and integrating generations.
