We were asked by the province of Utrecht to organize the second edition of the nature competition “Green Crown 2019″, which was followed by a successful closing event. For this edition, the province rewarded initiatives that make a positive contribution to biodiversity in the built environment. Of the 47 applications, two initiatives were declared winners – one in the category ‘’large’’ and one in the category ‘’small’’. The winners won a sum of money to realize their initiative.
In the category ”small”, ”De Utrechtse Steen” (The Stone of Utrecht) won the Green Crown with their innovative product for green quay walls along the canals of Utrecht. Het Hof van Cartesius was the winner in the category ‘’large’’ with their initiative ‘’Groene Werkplekken 2.0’’ (Green workplaces 2.0) to realize a biodiverse and climate-proof outdoor workplace.
