This event is open to young professionals, practitioners, PhD students, post docs, and others interested with a maximum of 25 participants. Aim of the YAP program is to learn new skills, exchange experiences, to network, get feedback on working relations, discuss research in progress, and reflect on (next steps in) career amongst peers in a relax atmosphere.
The YAP program will consist of three components:
- Workshop on Early carrier challenges and choices with Dr Lara Sibbing, Dr Anke Brons and Dr Roxana Triboi, three recently graduated PhD students in the field of sustainable food planning, but three different next steps in career: food policy, food academic and interface of food planning and education. A survey will be circulated prior to this workshop amongst the participants to prepare key questions and insight for this workshop.

The program of Almere 2022 will be co-hosted by the Erasmus plus Action for Education, Spatial Organisation and Planning for Sustainable Food (AESOP4Food). This partnership of universities and NGOs from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Poland, and Spain aims to answer the need for sustainable food planning by creating a joint interdisciplinary European learning activity.
Core target groups are university staff and students from architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, agronomy, environmental sciences, as well as sustainability studies.
