Keynote: Henk Mulder
Henk Mulder is the Deputy Mayor of Almere, and will speak about the plans for the Floriade 2022 World Expo. Every ten years since 1960 a world horticultural expo has been organised: the Floriade. After Rotterdam, Amsterdam (twice), Zoetermeer, Haarlemmermeer and Venlo, it is now Almere’s turn: this is where the 7th Floriade will be staged in 2022.
A Floriade is a large international exposition demonstrating innovations in the field of horticulture. Increasingly important is the legacy of the Floriade, what remains afterwards. The core of Almere’s plans is the development of a prototype of a Green City or district, a green variation of the Cité Idéale, where the Dutch horticultural industry can present itself to the world in 2022, which will also act as the main legacy.
