In September, people from Groningen have a chance to win 1000 euros for their ‘greening’ idea. Awesome Groningen – a community that donates 1000 euros to a good idea every month – is organizing a pitch evening for these ideas. With this amount, a small, tangible and awesome idea for a Greener Groningen can be helped out into the world.
From Monday, September 7 to Sunday, September 20, people with an idea can register, and on September 28 is the pitch evening, where the winning idea will be selected. People with a good idea can register via the website www.awesomegroningen.com.
The pitch evening is part of a broad campaign on climate adaptation: the climate in Groningen will also be drier, hotter (heat waves) and wetter (a lot of rain in a short time) in the coming years. Through small and tangible ideas we make the city greener and we help promote a good idea.
Awesome Groningen – Greener Groningen is a collaboration between Awesome Groningen and Climate Adaptation Groningen. Climate Adaptation Groningen was initiated by the Groningen Agreement and the Global Center on Adaptation, in collaboration with the National Program Groningen. It stimulates awareness and action around climate adaptation. In this context, the Climate Adaptation Week Groningen will be organized from Tuesday 19 to Monday 25 January 2021 and initiatives and activities will be set up in the city and province in the run-up to and during this week.
