Student in building Almere

Almere is the youngest city of the Netherlands, located in the province of Flevoland. Almere was built in the 1970's on land that was reclaimed from the sea in a feat of Dutch engineering. Now Almere has been developed into a well-planned city with residential areas, parks, lakes, modern infrastructure and excellent transport connections.

Almere has 200,000 inhabitants and around 5,000 students live in this city. Almere does not have a long tradition as a student city, but nevertheless Almere is a very interesting growing green city.

Food, Nature & Urban Green

The Challenge: In 2050, 80% of the world's population will live in cities. How do we keep cities liveable? As more people move to the city, this creates issues in terms of nature, liveability, and the supply of food, water and energy. Keeping expanding cities liveable requires knowledge. That's why we educate students around the themes of Food, Nature & Urban Green. The challenges are there: are you going to contribute to the solutions? Aeres University of Applied Sciences Almere has modern student facilities where you can work on these challenges.
