EUROSOLAR established the European Solar Prize in 1994 to celebrate renewable energy pioneers across Europe – and worldwide. Since then, the European Solar Prize has been awarded to more than 250 local and international actors from all parts of society. The award recognises towns and municipalities, communities, associations or organizations, architects, journalists and dedicated individuals. The European Solar Prize connects people who are paving the way to a renewable future with their innovation, commitment and work to implement the rapid energy transition to 100% renewable energy.
On the 2nd of December 2021 the award show is hosted at the beautiful De Waag in Amsterdam, a 15th-century building being part of the former city walls. A location where the old history and future innovations come together this day.
We are invited to speak on our #EatPlayTransform project in Amsterdam Zuidoost. This project brings together social jobs, upcycling of food waste and public awareness on the possibilities around food waste. Our colleague Mattijs will tell all the ins and outs of this Waste Transformer, being placed next to the famous football stadium the Johan Cruijff Arena Amsterdam.
