On World Cities Day 2019, Wageningen University & Research organizes the working conference “Feeding Cities & Migration”. This year, the general theme of the UN World Cities Day is Better City, Better Life.

Wageningen University & Research (WUR) has set the ambition to work on a better understanding of Urban Food Systems, and how resilient and adaptive these systems are. In doing so, the WUR seeks to generate a well-informed basis for strategic interventions and solutions.

A sustainable, resilient and adaptive urban food system is crucial to ensure quality of life in urban areas. WUR values early involvement of all parties concerned -from policy level to the field- to reach common understanding, joint action and maximum societal impact. The working conference “Feeding Cities & Migration” is dedicated to this.

The WUR would like to share their objectives with participants, reflect on the set course and see where parties could meet in action.
