During this inspiration session, the open call 'Building from the bottom up' of the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie was first explained. The subsidy scheme allows designers, governments, organisations, experts and citizens to work together on proposals for restoring the relationship between the subsoil and the topsoil.

Peter Veenstra of LOLA Landscape Architects and Selvatico (Heerlen Rooftop Project) then presented sample projects on this issue and the audience of architects, landscape experts, policy makers and other interested parties joined in the discussion. Selvatico concluded by explaining how the Rooftop design was realised in collaboration with partners. After the lecture, the private opening of The Heerlen Rooftop Project took place on the roof of Q-Park Putgraaf.
