In the four year run-up to Floriade Expo 2022 we will annually organize a Floriade Dialogue, starting in 2018, together with (inter)national knowledge institutions. Here knowledge on the central theme of Floriade ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be shared and exchanged. Each year one of the four subthemes will be the leading theme for the conference ‘Greening, Feeding, Healthying and Energizing the city’. For the organization collaboration is sought with renowned Dutch universities such as AMS, WUR, TU-Delft, Aeres University of applied sciences, VU University Amsterdam and Maastricht University. You are more than welcome to contribute and participate in any or all of these upcoming events.
