Part of Floriade Expo 2022

100 days of countdown to Floriade Expo 2022


In the man made province of Flevoland more than four metres below sea level in the city of Almere, which has always embraced green, a lot of hard work has been done in recent years on the realisation of the world horticultural exhibition Floriade Expo 2022. On 4 January, the countdown began; it was then only 100 days until Floriade opened its gates to visitors on 14 April. There was also a literal countdown to this day: by means of a large art installation in the form of a countdown clock on the Esplanade in Almere Centrum.

Residents, associations and organisations could claim their day by manually moving the clock in their own playful way and thus become part of the 100-day countdown party.



A party for and by Almere residents


In the case of the countdown clock, the public space was also enriched by the residents and entrepreneurs of Almere, who became part of the countdown party. They could participate by claiming one of the 100 days on, counting down together and sharing their experiences, dreams, hopes, news or other stories linked to the number of that day. The clock was moved manually every day, on some days by a special guest.
