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.

Sustainability is integrated in every stage of development. This circular economy model is the desired path for Ghent.”
