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.
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.
And we’re still far from finished. Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands, is now more than ever before a city of the future; a leader of a major green movement. Other people come here to see how we do this, and in turn we learn from others. We want to inspire and activate people and companies, while creating green projects and green jobs. Join us!
