EURAF conference

EURAF conference

‘We all know the agroforestry goal, but how to get there?’ That will be the overall and main question on our 2018-conference. How to realise the transition to an agricultural sector, that uses the economic and environmental benefits that agroforestry offers?

The ambition of the EURAF Conference 2018 is accelerating inspiring transitions towards agroforestry as sustainable land use, including the role that agroforestry has to play in order to fight against climate change.

EURAF is a bi-annual International conference on the combination of forestry and agriculture (Agroforestry). The EURAF 2018 conference will take place in De Lindenberg (location Ridderstraat), in the centre of Nijmegen, within a fifteen minute walk of Nijmegen Central Railway Station and a lot of hotels and with two parking facilities within 100 metres distance.

The Zoem Sessions are part of the campaign 'Nederland Zoemt', which aims to increase the food supply and nesting facilities for wild bees in the Netherlands.

Nijmegen has been elected European Green Capital 2018! We are the first Dutch city to hold this title, with Copenhagen, Bristol, Ljubljana, Essen and several others before us. We have earned the award by spending many years working hard on greening and sustainability. And by ‘we’ we mean the entire city and surroundings; both young and old, with major and minor activities.

WE’D LOVE TO MEET YOU IN OUR VISITOR’S PAVILION

The Visitors Pavilion on Kelfkensbos Square is the calling card of Green Capital and Nijmegen in 2018. We are quite proud of it, too! The pavilion is our ‘home’ for all of 2018. Here you’ll find everything you want to know about Green Capital. Feel free to ask us anything, get leaflets of our Green Routes or info about our events and Green Challenges.

The pavilion was designed by the famous Flemish architect Chris Poulissen. Does his name sound familiar to you? That could be right! He previously worked on innovative constructions such as the Oversteek and the Lentloper. The pavilion is an arc-shaped building made of tree trunks. The pavilion is easy to disassemble. And that’s going to happen after 2018; the pavilion will then be rebuilt and reused somewhere else.

ALL EVENTS!
