What is Let’s Gro?
A festival to inspire you about the future of the city and region, collecting all the amazing ideas, innovations and initiatives that Groningen holds and giving them an opportunity to shine and to grow.
Why this festival?
The idea of a inspirational festival came with all the changes in society these days. The role of the government, the economic crisis and a growing wish to live a more sustainable life, are good reasons to create some kind of gathering with the objective to connect people, revive energy and inspire great ideas. The focus we have in mind is always on making Groningen a better and nicer place to live.
How does Let’s Gro accomplish that?
Lets Gro covers a range of topics such as Sustainability, Health, Food, Young Talent, Urban Development, Mobility, Tech and many more. Let’s Gro provides an open platform where people can share their ideas through visual presentations, workshops, exhibitions and music. A festival organised by Groningen for Groningen! And by that, we mean for everyone who feels even the slightest connection with the city of Groningen and her residents.
Why so many different themes?
Yes, we have a full timetable. We simply can’t rule out any theme if you’re talking about the future of Groningen. The future is in everything and everything is in the future! Let’s Gro tries to offer everyone the chance to share their ideas, creating a very diverse line-up for you to discover.
What happens with all the ideas?
Our wish is that these great ideas find some footing and develop into practical initiatives and influential movements. Of which we already have many examples.
Do you have a great idea? Unfortunately, you can no longer send in an idea for the 2018 edition. But save it for next year and make sure you come to this year’s edition to talk with others!
