From 2010, the European Commission will reward cities for their efforts in improving the environment with the European Green Capital Award. The award is presented to the city that has demonstrated active and innovative efforts to achieve a more sustainable and cleaner environment. The aim of the award is to support and motivate European cities to improve the environment. As of January 2018 Nijmegen can call itself the proud winner of the Green Capital Award 2018! Will you help make Nijmegen even greener?
The Green Capital Challenge
Nijmegen has made a lot of sustainable progress in recent years. For example: insulated houses, solar panels installed, fast cycle routes and a reduction in gas and electricity consumption. In the coming year, the Nijmegen government will support and encourage various projects to make the city more environmentally friendly and to act as a role model for other cities.
