Description

It is a pleasure to announce the first international Floriade Dialogues Summit.

How do we build these green cities and how far off are we exactly? How does the availability and access to good, healthy food influence what we eat? And what is the best way to build and supply our cities with good food? Expect a lively scientific dialogue alternated with inspiring cases and best practices from international scientists, activists and creatives!

The first keynote speakers are already confirmed:

  • Raj Patel (UK/ India), this writer and 'rockstar' of social justice and food will explain what is wrong with our food system.
  • Mayor Chiara Appendino (IT) is the first mayor in the world to promote vegetarian and vegan diets as a priority in her administration. She'll join us via video.
  • Adriaan Geuze (NL), leading landscape - and urban architect, and owner of West 8. He will tell us about the role of the urban environment as a supplier of both nature and food.

Stay tuned for more names to be announced! We are looking forward to meet you there.
