It is WaterWeek!
During the UN 2023 Water Conference, we want to showcase the importance of water for our work at OOZE and feature some of the important water-related projects we were fortunate to realise with our partners over the years.

New collaboration to design sustainable regional food system

28 June 2019

Building on the success of our project SMAAKSTAAT, we’re excited to be working with Mansholt Prize-winning farmer and philosopher Jan Huijgen from the Eemlandhoeve, to develop a design for a regional and circular food system, centred on his farm in Bunschoten. The Eemlandhoeve has already for 25 years been a breeding ground for innovation in agriculture, demonstrating the value of nature-inclusive, multi-functional farming to a national and international audience, and exploring new financing and operating models that bring farmers and citizens, the countryside and the city, closer together. Together with (potential) project partners (such as Rutger Oolbekkink of Inbo, the Province of Utrecht, and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (Ministerie van LNV)) we are working to secure support and funding to progress the project further.
