How can we replace the abestos rooftops on the old farmbuildings in Groningen using sustainable and local materials? And make it look good! To answer this question we organised a design pressure cooker with Libau, Province Groningen and Farming Foundation Groningen.
'It is about innovation, the connection, the cross over, it is about people.' What a nice comment from the jury about our project We gaan het meemaken. Last week the project was awarded the Sustainability Award, an initiative of the Province of Groningen.
The competion was strong. The jury selected 3 out of 23 projects inncluding Waste no waste, Bos en Hout and We gaan het meemaken. Eileen Blackmore: ‘We are very proud, because the project touches the hearts of farmers, fisherman, entrepeneurs and the youth.'
The statue was made by Kunsteboer.
