Pilot projects win awards
Three of our pilot projects recently won awards.
We were convinced from the start that our pilot projects would be great additions to the different cities. Now, with more and more pilot projects nearing completion, we are proud to say that others share our enthusiasm for green infrastructure too. Three projects were recently awarded prizes:
- The ‘Blauwgroen Parkspoor Natuurlijk’ in the municipality of Kontich won the first prize in the category ‘landscape’ in a contest from the Flemish Vereniging voor Openbaar Groen (Flemish Association for Public Green). The project transformed an abandoned railway into a beautiful park with several ponds for water buffering. Take a look here (Dutch spoken)
- The Bluebloqs system that is used inside The Hague's Urban Water Buffer won the Urban Water Challenge by Imagine H2O. The Bluebloqs system collects, purifies and stores rain water for later use during dryer periods. The Urban Water Buffer has been completed. The official opening will be held this spring (if COVID regulations allow us). Take a look here (Dutch spoken)
- And the plans for the Kerkebeekpark in Brugge got awarded second place of the ORI Climate Proof Awards.
