Regeneratie Festival: eat or be eaten

September 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Experience how you can contribute to a sustainable world through the lens of food

About the festival

During this festival, we explore the relationship between people, nature and the city. The theme ‘eat or be eaten’ symbolizes the bond between human beings and nature and how interdependent they are – how we are, in fact, not separate from nature! Learn from inspiring speakers, storytellers and entrepreneurs about the impact of human actions on the environment, ecosystems and biodiversity – and vice versa. Gain practical tools how to implement regeneration in your daily life. Together we create alternative stories and hope for a regenerative future – while challenging our (post)-colonial and capitalist present.

– Find convergence and build connections with the regenerative agriculture side of the Dutch food movement and climate activists.
– Learn about different strategies to respond to our critical food system from an agroecological and food sovereignty view.


share stories, food and feelings | softness | playfulness | music | integration and healing | special welcome to the rebels of the A12 demonstration on Saturday the 9th

Sunday is a community day where we cook and eat local products together, regenerate from actions (special welcome to rebels from the A12!) and join in sharing circles. We share practices to stay soft, safe and open in moments of tension and stress. Feel free to come alone, we will facilitate an inclusive and nurturing group process!

11:00 – 11:30 – welcome: conversation on the power of community
11:30 – 13:00 – workshops: talking to the more-than-human world | cooking on fire | food rituals | setting the table for all senses
