Groene Mient is a social ecological housing project in The Hague. It consists of 33 homes on a shared plot of land. The objective of this project is to form a sustainable, climate-neutral neighborhood that is ecologically responsible. It also promotes social diversity, living in solidarity, and affordable living.
The homes have no gas connection and experiment with decentralized electricity generation. The buildings are fully equipped with energy-saving installations and sustainable energy concepts. They have solar panels, solar collectors, heat-recovery systems, and heat pumps. Additionally, they have a 3500 square meter communal garden according to the principles of permaculture. The project also includes climate adaptation infrastructure like flood prevention systems.
Affordable and Clean Energy: All of the energy used comes from sustainable energy concepts. The buildings' infrastructure and insulation serve as energy-saving installations.
Sustainable Cities and Communities: The architecture and the concepts applied all have the objective of creating ecological housing opportunities.
Partnership for the Goals: Groene Mient focuses on creating a diverse community with the shared vision of energy-neutral homes. The community is also partnered with many other organizations.
