The Green Village

The Green Village is a small experimental residential area, located on TU Delft Campus. It is a rule-free “open-air lab”, focused on the built environment. With research project 24/7 Energy Lab , a local, self-sufficient and integrated CO2-free energy system is realized at The Green Village for the built environment. It combines the use, generation and storage of renewable energy sources through a smart control system.

Zoutaccu’s Scouting estate Zeewolde

At Scouting estate Zeewolde there is a sustainable accommodation building the Avonturenhuis. In the field of energy, solar panels, solar collectors and storage of energy in batteries are being used to achieve maximum energy neutrality. The youth and young people who stay on the estate can literally see and experience how energy neutrality can be achieved. Good Grutten makes the purchase of the salt batteries possible.

Greendish

The Gelderland van Morgen project supports entrepreneurs in the hospitality, healthcare and catering sectors in making the food supply more sustainable. The focus is on eating more plant-based food and wasting less food. Within a consortium of more than 36 partners, Greendish is taking up the challenge: in the hospitality, catering and healthcare sector, ‘greening’ more than 10 million plates and wasting 15 to 25% less food. This should result in a CO2 reduction of 30-40%.

Voedselbosbouw NL

The Green Deal Food Forests partnership has completed a successful start-up phase, in which food forestry has shown itself to be a valid, innovative and inspiring form of integrated land use and food production. In the future, the momentum gained will be used to expand and deepen the cooperation for a national scale-up, and to help develop the necessary infrastructure.

Street farmer

With the Bean Parade project, stichting Straatboer changes grey business parks into green urbanised areas. Employees of the participating companies, local residents and people with a distance from the labour market are actively involved from sowing to consumption. In this way, eating more vegetables is stimulated, but also biodiversity and climate adaptation.

Fawaka Ondernemersschool

Within the FitBizkids program of social enterprise Fawaka Ondernemersschool, children take on the challenge of starting their own sustainable catering business and making the most tasteful responsible dishes. This way they learn what healthy eating and exercise is. Stichting Goede Grutten helps to develop the existing program (for BSO’s) into a version for schools, so that children from all walks of life are reached.
