Food and the city

Where to find us

This year, you’ll find Flevo Campus at the 2022 Floriade Expo in Almere, the Netherlands. Because Flevo Campus is operating from within the Floriade event site, activities on campus are subject to certain guidelines. In the spring of 2022, a new downtown branch of Flevo Campus will also open its doors. There, residents can tackle all kinds of issues related to food in the city.

The campus

Flevo Campus consists of the brand new facility for Aeres University of Applied Sciences, the Food Forum, which serves as Flevoland province’s pavilion during the Floriade Expo, and the startup town The Village, where food entrepreneurs who are just starting out can go for help and advice. During the 2022 Floriade Expo, other sites will open, including the Low Food Lab, an initiative of Flevo Campus and the Low Food Foundation, which promotes the food culture of the lowlands.

 

Construction of the campus itself is in full swing. After the Floriade Expo, Flevo Campus will be part of a sustainable housing development that’s yet to be built. The pictures below give an impression of some of the buildings on campus. The area is changing quickly, so come by and take a look!

How to get here

Our address is Arboretum West 100 in Almere, 1325 WB. Fill in Lesplaats, Almere in your navigation tool. You can park there and walk toward the View restaurant. Before entering the View lot, take a right on Bergsmapad. After some 100 meters, continue on the paved path to the left. At the end of this path, you’ll see the Food Forum ahead. 

It’s about a 10-minute walk. Please note: the 2022 Floriade Expo site is under construction. You can expect to encounter building equipment and construction vehicles on unfinished roads.

FC the Future

At FC the Future, the research arm of Flevo Campus, we study what the city eats and how we can transition to a healthy, sustainable, and futureproof food system. Located at Traverse 1a in downtown Almere, FC the Future is now open seven days a week.

Floriade

The World Horticultural Expo known as the Floriade, first held in 1960, is now held once every 10 years in the Netherlands.
