The Community Team is about building a sustainability community within and beyond our university. Central to the team is fostering a tight-knit community within our office of 50+ members, raising awareness of our office among other staff and students at our university, and running long-term projects to build bridges between sustainability-interested groups and institutions in Amsterdam.
The Community portfolio thus holds three main responsibilities:
Creating and sustaining an internal Green Office community (among UvA Green Office members), including both team-building and action-oriented connections. This includes connecting members within teams, across teams, and between the core team and managers and wider office.
Fostering a sustainability community at the University of Amsterdam in which the UvA Green Office is the central body of sustainability for both staff and students, and across organisations and faculties.
Connecting the UvA Green Office to relevant sustainability bodies in Amsterdam beyond the university and fostering meaningful connections for both team spirit and sustainability action.
The Community team leader position is currently filled by Giovanna Hunsrao.
