Coming years, the housing development faces some major challenges. In a relatively short amount of time, a relatively large amount of new housing solutions is needed. The North of the Netherlands wants to do so in a circular way. Let’s have a closer look at these new circular construction concepts.

It is no secret that Friesland is the prettiest of Dutch provinces. That’s why Provincie Fryslân has the ambition to be fully energy neutral and self-sufficient as an organisation by 2025, generating enough electricity to cover the total energy use of the organisation itself. Are you ready to help make this happen?

A future without fossil fuels: everyone seems to want it, but not in their own backyard. So the real challenge isn’t just to find renewable energy sources, but also to change people’s mindsets as well as to create renewable energy sources that are visually and artistically appealing. Sounds like a Dorp challenge!

How can we create awareness about the sustainable generation and usage of electricity on festivals and construction sites? And can we, by monitoring generation and usage, make the subject more fun and understandable for both festival visitors and construction workers on these locations?

Sustainability has become a prominent subject in the public transport sector, and all buses should be emission-free by 2030. There’s a small obstacle, however. The electricity network does not (sufficiently) reach every little nook and cranny of the Netherlands… Time to find a solution!

Dorpling

Innovation and sustainability. Wonderful words, we think. And you probably agree! Not only do we think about it a lot, we also like to talk about it. But what we'd even rather do, is work on it. Because rolling up our sleeves, getting our hands dirty, going from thinking to making and persevering - that's a challenge. One that we love and that we just know will have spectacular results. Together, we contribute to a sustainable world. Are you in?
