Partner projects substantiate the long-term tasks laid out in Utrecht2040's mission. They are the first fruits of a vision of societal change on the road to a sustainable and attractive Utrecht in 2040. Projects can operate on small or large scales. They might be pre-existing or new, and can be introduced by the regional network or by the provincial organisation.
Starting in 2011, the annual Sustainability Award will be handed out to one of the introduced partner projects. This annual award was initiated to spotlight examples of sustainability projects.
