Global warming, biodiversity under pressure and imbalance in our nitrogen cycle: these are just a few examples that show that the earth is cracking under the pressure we impose on it. We must intervene and balance the growing world population with the limits of our planet.

In Wageningen we are aware of this urgency, thousands of scientists are working on parts of the solution. The challenges we face know no geographic boundaries, requiring science and society to work together to find answers for our planet, across disciplines. Education and dialogue play a central role in this.

This year’s theme: Planetary Boundaries

At the opening of our academic year, three scientists from Wageningen addressed the theme planetary boundaries. Talking about research on agriculture, the social aspects of the food system and the driving forces behind transitions and tipping points. Our three scientists shared their ideas and vision on what is needed and what is possible. They showed how different disciplines and generations work together in Wageningen, in Europe, and across the globe.
