BeeStreet is about the greening of inner cities: for people and bee. It provides a solution to heat stress and rainwater storage. But most of all it creates a cosy and pleasant street!
BeeStreet started in 2018 as part of Smart Leeuwarden: a project in which smart collaboration is paramount for innovation and a pleasant living environment. In 2018, the activities focused on the area around the Blokhuispoort. In the follow-up, we will focus on the area around the Ruiterskwartier, Zaailand and Wilhelminaplein.
Changing city centre
The need for measures to cope with flooding and heat stress coincides with the change process that inner cities undergo. The city centre of Leeuwarden is transforming from a place to buy to a place to be. The motives of visitors to the city centre are becoming more recreational.
Together with entrepreneurs and residents, several activities are organised, including a design pressure cooker led by House of Design, façade gardens, a greening party with students, MossArt and a harvest festival.
