Having fun while doing something good
Do you want to do something special with your team? Something that makes you feel good and is fun at the same time?
You and your company or team can go to vzw DOKano for fishing waste. Armed with grabs, gloves and waste bins, you hit the road! Collect as much waste as possible and help to clean the water. After the canoe trip, the waste is weighed on the quay.
You can visit us every Tuesday between 1 April and 1 November. Other days are possible on request. You choose either the morning session from 9.30am to 12pm or the afternoon session from 1.30pm to 4pm. It is possible to have a picnic or have lunch nearby.
9.30 am - 10 am intro: explanation about fishing dirt, recycling, safe sailing and the sailing map
10h-11h30 boating and fishing dirt: fish as much waste as possible from the water and try to fish the 'catch of the day', the most original piece of waste
11:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Back ashore: after the canoe trip the catch is sorted and weighed. We brainstorm together about how we can prevent unnecessary plastic and are happy to share your inspiration on our Facebook page.

With this contribution we can further support our Clean Water Project, whereby we focus on awareness and dirty fishing among school-aged young people.
Tip! You can be guided during the workshop by Ghent Active Guides. They will take you in tow and have developed a tour about ecology especially for us. Ask for it!
The DOKano departure point is Schipperskaai 49, 9000 Ghent, a ten-minute walk from Gent Dampoort station. From the Nieuwe Dokken there are various sailing routes to enter the city.
