Greener Groningen – Pitch night 28 september

Do you have the most awesome idea for a Greener Groningen? Pitch your idea during the next edition of Awesome Foundation Groningen! If you participate you have a chance to win € 1000 to implement your idea, our trustees will help you with their network and you get to know new people who want to join you. From Monday, September 7 to Sunday, September 20, people with an idea can register.

Win €1000 to make Groningen greener
Did you know that in cities with 6% green roofs, the temperature in summer can be one and a half degrees lower?

Do you have a good, small-scale and practical idea to green roofs, squares or other objects in Groningen? Then you can earn €1000 to realize it.

Awesome Groningen organizes a pitch evening for good ideas and Climate Adaptation Groningen supports it. Go to and submit your idea. Who knows, you might be one of the people to present your idea on the pitch evening of 28 September and you might win the €1000 to make Groningen greener.

This is what we are looking for
– Your idea has to do with a greener city
– Your idea doesn’t make you more rich, but makes Groningen a tad more awesome
– You can use some help and money to make your idea reality

The pitch evening is on September 28, 2020. You can watch online anyway. If possible (rules…) the public is also welcome! Keep an eye on our pages for the latest news.

What is Awesome Groningen?
Awesome Groningen is a local community. We want to make Groningen more ‘awesome’, cool and social and do this by boosting (small-scale) ideas from the city. The foundation has 20 trustees. They each give 50 euros to grant a total of €1000 to the winner of a pitch. We organize pitch evenings several times a year and they always have a different theme. This time the theme is greening Groningen in collaboration with Climate Adaptation Groningen.
