In 2021, ’the Village’ has opened as part of the Flevo Campus knowledge institute. The Village is a breeding ground, where students and professionals working come together and where (aspiring) entrepreneurs from the Netherlands and abroad get the opportunity to start and develop their own business. The close-knit community aims to be an inclusive hub, welcoming people with all kinds of backgrounds and promoting diverse perspectives. In a broader sense, the Village is the place where the food system transitions into a personal network, education transitions into entrepreneurship and where ideals transition into practice.
