A green and healthy Almere, that’s our goal.

Work with us on a city that is ready for the future.

Almere is a city of experiments. That’s good, because we stimulate the existing and new economy to test solutions to the challenges facing our city. But we won’t get there just by experimenting.

It is time for us to move further and make even more impact. Time to change our approach as well. We are going to work on a city that is ready for the future: a green and healthy city.

We believe in a proactive collaboration between government and businesses. That’s why we are starting to form coalitions that go beyond the exchange of words. Our strength lies in connecting parties and facilitating processes. That creates expectations and that is exactly the intention. Together we work on tangible and achievable ambitions and challenges and we come up with smart collaborations that make the city better. Do you already have an existing coalition? Awesome! Even then we are happy to help you.

The issues ahead of us are big. That’s why our approach must also be great. There is a desire on both sides to make a positive contribution, but where do we start?

We start by forming coalitions that go beyond the exchange of words.

A green and healthy city is a responsible city, built by people who believe that things must and can be done differently. We offer space to new and existing companies to further develop business cases that provide benefits for people and nature.

We have already thought about ten issues. A first step, because this program and this website are on the move. We will be adding and expanding new issues in the near future. Keep following us and don’t hesitate to contact us to stay informed.
