This celebration will not only take place in Wageningen but also around the world. A varied programme will be organised on Wageningen Campus and in many countries.
Countdown till 23 June
Sustainable Food & Nutrition
The theme of this day is Sustainable Food & Nutrition. Healthy and safe food is essential and food forms a bond between people. During World Wide Wageningen Alumni Day, food connects our alumni to each other and to their alma mater. Special events such as the Online Worldwide Dialogue and the Live Cooking event will take place on this day.
Online Worldwide Dialogue 'Access to Healthy Food in Metropolitan Cities'
During the World Wide Wageningen Alumni Day five panels of (alumni) experts representing the different continents (Asia, Africa, South America, United States and Europe) will be connected and will discuss the topic 'Access to Healthy Food in Metropolitan Cities' where it concerns oa: production, rural depopulation, logistics and food waste flows (in relation to circular economy). The dialogue will be broadcasted and can be joined by alumni all around the world.
More information on how to join the Online Worldwide Dialogue will follow soon.
