Welcome Borrel for Volunteers

On November 1, we welcomed our newly recruited volunteers for a borrel at CREA, where we had a wonderful time getting to know each other, having some drinks, and mingling. The highlight of the night was a game of "sustainable bingo" :) Kudos to our co-manager Anka for preparing it!

October - 2023


Sustainability Day

On the 10th of October, the Green Office celebrated Sustainability Day. The core team members prepared stands at various campuses of the UvA like Roeterseiland Campus, Oudemanhuispoort, and Science Park. To make things interactive, we created banners that prompted the questions "What is your vision for a sustainable future?" and "Does sustainability contribute to colonial narratives?". Anyone who walked by was able to come chat with us and add their contribution by writing their opinions on the banners.

In line with the second banner prompt, we also welcomed a speaker to organize a lecture. Chris de Ploeg broadened our knowledge on topics such as (neo-) colonialism, climate racism, and ecological breakdown. It was especially interesiting to gain a depper understanding of the relationship between these, seemingly unrelated, subjects.

Thank you Chris, for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us.
