Are you interested in renewable energy, upcycling, sustainable food of fair fashion? Then 'De Duurzaamste Buurt' is something for you!

iDROPS, elected Energy Ambassador, and the province of East Flanders want to turn Ghent's neighborhoods Macharius-Heirnis & New Ghent into a hub for sustainable and creative initiatives. Together with local organisations and residents we make circular lamps, design sustainable party clothing, we organise a leftover picknick... and so much more. Join us and visit one of our monthly free activities or inform us about your creative ideas! Keep an eye on the program below!
