International week

From February the 4th until February the 8th of 2019, Artesis Plantijn University College Antwerpen and The Hague University of Applied Sciences will organize an international co-creation week: Food ConFusion Framing Food Facts, on the abundant and sometimes misleading information on nutrition and health and ways to deal with that as a professional. 

For who?
This weeks is intended for European students from Nutrition and Dietetic related programmes and of course, their lecturers. If these come from partnering universities, lecturer exchange funding is possible. Artesis Plantijn University, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Coventry University will be present with students and lecturers.

The programme contains multiple workshops by nutrition and media experts on the different ways food facts are presented to the media. It leads you to a final assignment in which you apply framing strategies to (mis)inform the audience of the symposium on Friday. In between, there's time for social events film evening, excursion, a lunch and a Master Chef competition in the kitchens of The Hague University of Applied Sciences and maybe a visit to the beach.

The host city of this year's week will be The Hague, a cosmopolitan city combining beach and royalty, historic buildings and a modern skyline, bikes and limousines. The location is Johanna Westerdijkplein 75, 2521 EN Den Haag

Participation to the international week is free of charge. Your stay and drinks & most of the food during the evening will be on your pay. This shouldn't have to be too expensive: there are quite some hostels in The Hague as well as campus canteens to eat for a reasonable price. Information will be provided with useful tips for travelling, nice restaurants, shops and touristic activities.
