King Willem-Alexander to open WUR alumni day

We are proud that the Dutch King, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander will open the worldwide alumni day at Wageningen University & Research on 23 June. On that day, alumni come together to reminisce at locations across the globe, and on the campus itself. In addition to performing the official opening ceremony, the King will speak to researchers, students, and alumni. The worldwide alumni day is one of the events WUR has organised in honour of the university’s 100-year anniversary.

The King will arrive at the Wageningen campus in the afternoon. Shortly after the opening address from Louise O. Fresco, President of the Executive Board, the King will open “the WURld dialogue”: a unique occasion where alumni from across five continents will engage in real-time discussions together. The topic: how large cities will be provided with enough nutritious food by 2030.
