2021: The Green Six Days
The Green Six Days is a completely new and coronaproof concept with a mix of online and offline floral and plant attractions.
The online part will be driven by social media and an online platform where you can indicate what you would like to know more about. On the website, you will find videos with information and downloadable packages.
With this online concept, you are no longer bound to opening hours and you get the opportunity to discover new things about your favourite plants every day.
Less and less greenery can be found in city centres. The purpose of the 2022 Floralies is to provide a counterimage by means of a dynamic, green and blooming environment created by the local and international horticultural sector. Workshops, pop-ups, green rooms and concept rooms will also be organised. Visitors to the 2022 Floralies will get the opportunity to discover the latest developments as to trends, durability, research and innovation.
This edition’s theme is “My Paradise, a Global Garden”.
In our modern society people increasingly go looking for quiet, peace, their inner selves and their own personal paradise. That paradise is different for everyone. For some it’s a plant-filled living room, for others it’s green space in the city, a park, a nature reserve or maybe their own backyard.
This edition of the Floralies chimes with the Van Eyck year 2020-2021. The Ghent Altarpiece by the Van Eyck brothers and an image of bishop Triest’s garden are the starting point and source of inspiration for “My Paradise, a Global Garden”. The flower exhibition portrays the migration of flowers and plants. It also draws the visitors’ attention to the past and the present of Ghent; still a green, liveable and malleable city.
