Circular inspiration: Ghent’s new circular life for its Old Dockyards
In Ghent, Belgium, the circular economy brings together companies, institutions, governments and citizens on the way to sustainability. At the same time, its potential for innovation, job creation and economic development reinforces the attractiveness of the city. Read about The Old Dockyards, a waterfront housing project, that has regenerated the area in a sustainable and circular way.
Daniël Termont, mayor of Ghent, said: “Our ambition is to further reduce the ecological footprint of Ghent and to evolve towards a climate neutral city. Making sustainable living possible in the city, also means allowing a good quality of life in a healthy environment. The Old Dockyards is an excellent example. Sustainability is integrated in every stage of development. This circular economy model is the desired path for Ghent.”
