On November 9th, 110 participants from the Netherlands and Flanders gathered in Leiden for the second urban agriculture day. Our colleague Gert Engelen was present and shared our experience with the Leuven food strategy, which we helped to develop.
It’s very clear that in recent years a new dynamic emerged around cities and food. A meeting like that in Leiden is important because it helps people to see their daily work in a broader picture. It gives us the opportunity to make connections and to become part of a larger platform.
