University of Amsterdam Summer Programme: The Urban Food Experience

Dear Students,

University of Amsterdam’s Graduate School of Social Sciences is offering a summer programme: The Urban Food Experience.

This programme explores the ways in which food and cities are intrinsically connected. People living in cities are becoming less aware of where food comes from, how it is produced, and at what costs (both resource and human) as food is mostly produced in rural areas, out of sight, and out of mind. The consequences of this global food system, however, become increasingly visible to us as city dwellers, and especially in the Global South and the poorer parts of our cities. As the world’s population grows rapidly, food production is already one of the most important topics of our age. Join us this summer to understand this essential subject through a series of lectures and excursions.

Scholarships: If you are a student from a LERU or U21 University, you are eligible for a €500 tuition fee reduction. For more information on the scholarships, please visit their website. For enquires, please email to

Thank you.
