Afternoon program

When the meeting is finished you will go back to the boat where a light lunch is served as we set course to the Almere Floriade World Expo development area. At the Floriade development area we will enjoy a unique presentation and behind the scenes look into the largest horticulture exhibition in the world, which will be held in Almere in 2022.

Almere is a young city within the metropolitan area of Amsterdam, built on land reclaimed from the sea. Almere’s urban development plan is based on the Garden City Model: different city districts with green and blue belts  in between, used for recreation areas, nature zones and agriculture. Almere currently has a population of nearly 200,000 and is only halfway it’s future size. This is why Almere is focusing firmly on the future and has introduced the Green City concept, with the 2022 World Expo on Horticulture ‘Floriade’ as an important accelerator. 

Within twenty years’ time, almost seventy percent of the world population will be living in cities. Knowledge, products and technologies from the agricultural and horticultural sectors are being used to find solutions to urgent and global urbanization issues, related to food, energy, water and health. Companies, knowledge institutes and students work together to find solutions for these challenges.

Following the presentation a joint bicycle tour around the lake “Weerwater” where you will be led along extraordinary parts of Almere. This program focuses on Almere’s sustainable development and the Green City concept. Definetely a program you would not want to miss!. After the bike ride the boat will bring you back to the City Centre or the Hotel.
