Flevo Campus challenges you: do you have a strong opinion about urban food supply - in times of corona and beyond? Write an essay about it, and perhaps your essay gets published in the next Flevo Campus essay book (to be published end of 2020).
The current global corona crisis shows us - the hard way - what is really important in life: good health and access to sufficient and healthy food. We hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe at home. And if that's the case, we also hope we can challenge you. Because Flevo Campus is looking for the best ideas about the urban food system. And if there is one thing you can do really well in home isolation, it's writing
. Flevo Campus challenges you: write an essay on urban food supply and win a publication and a generous fee!
The question arises more urgently than ever now: how do we feed a rapidly increasing urban population in the 21st century? What has gone wrong so far, and how can things be improved? Do you have good ideas about how to feed the city, how to protect biodiversity, or how to keep urban residents healthy? What would the ideal food system look like - during, or after this crisis?
Flevo Campus wants to help build the food system of the future. That's why we organize this essay competition for the second time, on the lookout for everyone with bright ideas. We challenge scientists, journalists, writers and food professionals to bring their unvarnished opinions or findings on urban food issues into a sharp essay. Reward: publication in the annual Flevo Campus essay book, next to other professional writers, plus a generous writing fee.
