OPENING ACADEMIC YEARWageningen University and ResearchPresentations for the Opening Academic Year of Wageningen University & Research. 

Abstract image rhyme through film. Circularly flowing between speakers, interludes and introductions. No "talking, picture slide" but actual images of Landsharing, the history of famine, and food policies.

The effects of climate change are felt everywhere and have an unavoidable impact on the global food supply. At the same time, current agricultural practices contribute to crossing planetary boundaries. Are there actually any prospects for a sustainable future?

WUR enjoys a unique position that allows us to outline perspectives on the directions we can take by looking at the entire food system from different disciplines and explaining both the dilemmas and the false contradictions. 

With some technical help from studio Mikkel (engineer & product designer) and Mara Roos (graphic designer & developer). I dedicated myself to the presentations for the Opening Academic Year of Wageningen University & Research. The visual design was made in the form of abstract image rhyme through film. Circularly flowing between speakers, interludes and introductions. No "talking, picture slide" but actual images of Landsharing, the history of famine, and food policies. Partially shot on the university's Atlas Campus.

Wageningen University & Research annually celebrates the Opening of the Academic Year. In it, speakers share their views on a topical theme. The 105th Opening Academic Year, 2023 - 2024, took place on Sept. 4, 2023. This year's theme was Shaping Sustainable Futures.
