On Friday the 10th of October (10/10) this year’s “Dag van de Duurzaamheid“, the day of sustainability, in the Netherlands takes place. On this special day, thousands of sustainable activities will are organized throughout the Netherlands by individuals, companies, organizations and governments. Together they show why the Netherlands is leading the way in sustainable business and how sustainability fits in daily life.
This national “Dag van de Duurzaamheid” is an initiative of Urgenda, an active organization that strives for fast increase of sustainability and innovation in the Netherlands. With the “Dag van de Duurzaamheid”, the goal of Urgenda is to present the strength and the size of the already existing sustainability movement in the Netherlands. People and organizations who are already engaged in sustainability practices will present their experiences, inspiring other people to join.

These include for example the “Low Car Diet”, in which companies use bicycles, shared cars, public transportation and flex offices to decrease their carbon footprint, competitions on “the best sustainability idea”, the “Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week”, the “Circle of Trust”, in which entrepreneurs come together to share and develop new sustainability methods and many more.
