In Boekel Ecovillage we cater our needs in a very sustainable way. By doing so, we contribute solutions for climate change, environmental pollution, loss of biodiversity and exhaustion of natural resources, in close cooperation with our surroundings. If fact, Boekel Ecovillage is working on all 17 SDGs!
We have build a (mostly) self-supporting village when it comes to energy, water and a big part of our food. It will be financially supported by three levels of government, as we are their showroom and living lab. Everything will be done following our ambitious vision and mission and will be completely fossil-free.
Boekel Ecovillage acts as a Living Lab, a real-life test and experimentation environment for a sustainable future. Ecovillagers are users and producers, co-create innovation and foster user-driven open innovation.
On July 1 2021, the Dutch Building sector awarded Boekel Ecovillage as the Most sustainable organisation of the Netherlands. Boekel Ecovillage also won the Public choice award.
