Urban Green, What Do You Mean?!

8:00 pm Cafe Droog

The theme ‘urban green’ is hot. Companies, websites, reports, research programs, and organizations tell us that urban green is an important topic. It’s true, it is. But what are we really talking about? What do you personally experience as urban ‘green’ and how do you envision what this actually represents in your daily life?

Instead of looking at urban ‘green’ from a city planners top-down view, we will be exploring it from boots on the ground through the eyes of ordinary citizens, creative Instagram influencers and a city ecologist.

Join us on March 9 at 8pm:
 - Ecologist Anneke Blokker will be discussing the impact green zones and buildings have on the ecology and bio diversity in the city.

- Designer Edith Gruson and Droog Founder and Director Renny Ramakers, will present the latest Droog project ‘Re-Dreaming the Street’ which intends to present new solutions to accommodate the needs of residents in a once already ‘green’ designed neighborhood in Amsterdam’s Nieuw-West

- Instagrammers Senns_less and David Esser will open the Urban Green Instagram Pop-Up at Hôtel Droog exhibiting unique photos by Instagram influencers.

The opening of the Urban Green Instagram Pop-Up will also take place on March 9 at 9.30pm. This exhibition offers a creative take on the theme of ‘Urban Green’ from 10 internationally well-known Instagram photographers exhibiting brand new images, seen for the first time offline.

The winner of the Best Photo in the Urban Green Instagram Contest will be awarded during the event.
