After all

Debate on Intensive Agriculture

It has been postponed a couple of times but it seems it is going ahead now after all: the debate on intensive agriculture between students and (amongst others) Aalt Dijkhuizen. In September, Aalt Dijkhuizen argued in Trouw  newspaper for an intensification of agriculture. This provoked protest: scientists responded in the national press and students demonstrated in the Forum. This debate came out of all that. It will also address the role of the university in the public debate. On Tuesday 11 December 17.00-19-00 in the Forum, with rector Martin Kropff and professors Edith Lammerts van Bueren and Lijbert Brussaard.
