Nijmegen, Nederlands, European Green Capital 2018
Leader of a green movement
Nijmegen has been awarded the title of European Green Capital 2018. For a whole year, we will be the Green Capital of Europe. What a great compliment!
We are the first Dutch city to hold this title, with Copenhagen, Bristol, Ljubljana, Essen and several others before us. We have earned the award by spending many years working hard on greening and sustainability. And by ‘we’ we mean the entire city and surroundings; both young and old, with major and minor activities.
And we’re about to celebrate this achievement, and how! In 2018, we’ll be showing the Netherlands and Europe that it is possible, and how it is possible. We’ll show people how we invest in food, health and a green living environment, and in sustainable business and technical innovations as well.
Everything is useful
An increasing number of companies in the region of Nijmegen are discovering that sustainable business practices can also be profitable. A circular economy is one that makes use and re-use of all the materials in the production chain. What is waste for one company becomes a raw material for another.
