42 people participated at the Kaas- en Bierproeverij, organized by our brewers. The cheese dishes were very much appreciated and especially the organic beers Zwarte Madam, Gageleer and our own beer d'ou belge 11 got really good marks. And while the younger participants enjoyed an early game of stratego the older generation played cards until midnight. Cheese, beer and games... it doesn't get better than this! [Photo gallery]

With only 13 participants, this years Texas Night Poker Event was not the biggest of his kind. But, for sure, there was no lack of good atmosphere, tension and emotion. At 2h30 in the night, Simon looses the heads up against Gert, the winner of the day. He goes home with a beautiful package of comic books, and, of course, the marvelous SPT cowboy hat!

Due to a substantial shortage of qualitative and durable social housing, people in need have to wait years before a solution for their housing needs can be found. That's why Hiperion is starting the project 'Bel Poutrel'. The aim is to make our own contribution to the housing market by obtaining our own little house, renovate it and making it available for people who really need it. Read more

Silke Steenwegen and Eric Maes have been accepted as new members of the General Assembly. Silke already was presented on this website when she joined the Board of Directors. Eric is not unknown in Hiperion circles either as he is the coordinator and one of the founding fathers of the brewing project. He is especially interested in the position of vulnerable people in the society. More specifically he worked on the topic of reinsertion and the guidance of (ex-)prisoners in Belgium. And during recent travel experiences in the west of Africa and in India he personally saw the distressing consequences of a growing social inequality in countries where a booming economy exists side by side with dire poverty. It was all he needed to be motivated to present his candidature for the General Assembly of Hiperion.

Hiperion explores the feasability of two new projects. For a long time now Hiperion dreams of supporting the market of social housing, as there is a enormous shortage of qualitative housing for people living in financially difficult circumstances. On top of that, the housing that is offered to them often does not meet todays ecological standards. We know we can do better. That's why we started exploring the field of social housing. Before the start-up there is still a lot of work to be done, so don't expect this project lift off within the next days. Earlier results are expected of a second project that is being prepared at present. That one focuses on offering fashionable clothing that complies with the highest standards of durability and fairtrade. With some luck you might find the first Hiperion polo or t-shirt under your Christmas tree!

Silke Steenwegen becomes the newest member of the board. We are proud to present this promising, young worker and are looking forward to a captivating collaboration. Silke as well shows much ambition accepting the challenge: "From when I was young the topic of social injustice speaks to me. A student exchange program during one year in Argentine and an interesting apprenticeship during my formation gave me insights in social matters and gave me even more hunger to work for a more warm, more just world. Next to this topic, nourished by the 'green family' I've grown up in, I think it is of vital importance to work together towards an ecological and durable world. As a future socio-cultural educationalist I am excited to be part of the Hiperion team and to cooperate to their social and durable projects."

It is clear that Hiperion becomes a well known name in Herent. And now... the rest of the world is waiting for us!
