Springfest and sustainability market

The Sustainability Market along with the yearly Spring Festival at the Nature Quarter Nieuwegein showed visitors in a fun and playful way how they could organize their lives in a more sustainable manner. On the Sustainability Market some 40 organizations presented ideas to the visitors on how to actually undertake action towards a better, healthier and more social life. Visitors were challenged to change one of their daily habits towards a more sustainable lifestyle and thus contribute to a more sustainable city of Nieuwegein.

The participants in the market varied from BalconyBarrell (gardening at your balcony in a barrel), Manic Organic (vegetarian catering), Clothingbank 4 Nieuwegein, Join for dinner (an organisation that matches lonely people with people who are willing to invite to a dinner), to Repair Café and the Nature and Environmental Education Centre and its partners (who use the Centre as their home base) and the municipal petting zoo, also based in the Nature Quarter.
