Welcome to Torekes!

In the Ghent neighbourhood of Rabot-Blaisantvest we reward local civic contributions towards our neighbours, our neighbourhood or our environment, with our very own currency: the Toreke (designed by Saar De Buysere).

On this website you can find what’s happening in Rabot-Blaisantvest and how you can earn Torekes!

Torekes explained

Step 1

Less rubbish in my street. A flowery facade. More renewable energy. Who could have an issue with that? I can be part of making this pleasant neighbourhood in just a few simple steps.

Step 2

In this neighbourhood we use an innovative approach. We reward positive behaviour with our very own local currency: the Toreke. On this website I can discover what we can do for the environment and for the neighbourhood, and get Torekes for it.

Step 3

The Torekes are valuable! I can use them in neighbourhood shops for healthy and sustainable purchases. All shops that accept Torekes are listed on this website. With the Torekes I can also get gifts at the Torekes counter or pay the rent for my allotment.

Step 4

By contributing to the Torekes-events, we can make this neighbourhood a nicer, cleaner, greener place to live. At the same time we support our neighbourhood shops by using the Torekes locally.

For more information, join us at the Torekes-counter, Wondelgemstraat 73a. We’re open every Thursday from 15.00 till 19.00, or you can make an appointment by calling 0485 177 113
