The Events & 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 Events & 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 Events & Community team leader position is currently filled by Diana Burduja.
