Kids University for Cooking is a Public Private Partnership and contributing to a healthy lifestyle. Inspired by the children themselves and in collaboration with science, education and the food industry, we are creating exciting and instructive programs that make 6-16-year-old children aware of their dietary habits in an exciting and fun way. We have done this with over 15.000 children in the last 1.5 year. Simultaneously we facilitate and stimulate innovation in food and work jointly with Universities of Wageningen and Maastricht. Two of our projects are nominated for the InnovAward 2013.
The Floriade is a large world horticulture exposition that is held every ten years in the Netherlands. From April to October 2012, the sixth edition of the Floriade was organized by the Region Venlo Floriade 2012. There were approximately 100 domestic and 40 foreign participants expecting over two million visitors. The entire area comprises 66 hectares (163 acres) and now that the Floriade closed its gates, it will continue life as a green business and educational park, “Venlo Greenpark.”
