In the Utrecht public health monitor, we keep track of a wide variety of figures. For example, we measure how the green facilities are assessed by the residents of the municipality of Utrecht. We can also view the health of the population in the different neighbourhoods in Utrecht.
We measure different sustainability parameters for our whole city not for this specific initiative. The yearly report can be found here:
Successes which this project has added to our objectives are:
The initiative of the fish doorbell brings global attention to the migration problems of fishes.
With the project of green roofed bus shelters (these are placed in the Station area and throughout the whole city) we won a nomination for the European Bee Award.
Sustainable Development Goals
With our strategy for Healthy Urban Living for Everyone we also contribute to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs offer us an international language and an opportunity to share knowledge and contribute to a shared global agenda. In this way we can work together with cities worldwide on innovative solutions to make our city greener, more liveable and healthier for everyone.
With a local SDG Dashboard we create insight on how our local strategy for Healthy Urban Living for Everyone is connected to the 17 SDGs. That supports our efforts to mobilize additional investments such as the EU Green Deal and EU Cohesion Funds. We connect our public procurement policy to the SDGs supporting local entrepreneurs and buying social.
