Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018
Nijmegen is going to be the sustainable capital of Europe for a year. We earned the award because of our intensive efforts over many years to make Nijmegen greener and more sustainable. ‘We’ refers to the whole city and its surrounding area.
In 2018, we are going to show the Netherlands and Europe that it can be done, and how it can be done. How we invest in food, health and a green living environment – and just as much in sustainable business and technological innovation. And we are far from finished. Nijmegen, the oldest city of the Netherlands, is more than ever a city of the future. A pioneer in the large green movement.
