    Floriade Dialogues Summit Uitgesteld

    De manier waarop wij voedsel maken, kopen en eten heeft grote impact op de planeet. Gelukkig hebben we goed nieuws: over de hele wereld zijn mensen hard bezig dit te veranderen.

    Coronavirus update 

    Unfortunately, the Floriade Dialogues Summit is postponed and will not take place on the 26th of March, 2020. This is because of the measures regarding the coronavirus. All events with over 100 people are cancelled, and sadly that affects the Summit too.

    We had a sold-out edition ready with a great line-up of changemakers, a nice location and good food. We are really doing the best we can to reschedule this edition. Let’s make the changemaking happen as soon as possible!

    We are exploring new dates and will announce an update as soon as possible. But right now, everybody’s health is the most important thing we have to take into account.

    Take care of yourself and of each other. We will keep you posted!



    Tijdens de Floriade Dialogues Summit over Changemakers in Food laten voedselhelden van over de hele wereld zien hoe zij het voedselsysteem veranderen. Van pionierende boeren tot dappere beleidsmakers en dierenactivisten. Deze veranderaars laten je zien hoe dingen anders kunnen! Bekijk het hele programma hieronder.

    We danken iedereen voor het grote enthousiasme: het event zit vol en de registraties zijn gesloten.
    Je kan je nog wel opgeven voor de wachtlijst. We kijken ernaar uit om een publiek te verwelkomen met gasten uit de hele voedselketen. Van chefs tot beleidsmakers en van boeren tot ontwerpers.

    Datum: Donderdag 26 maart 2020
    Tijd: 09.00 – 16.00 uur
    Locatie: Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland (KAF), Almere
    Voertaal: Engels
    Registratie: Gesloten
