Green Hub Twente, SUSTAIN and the DesignLab have joined forces to organise the Sustainability Series for the next four months. Each month they arrange workshops, evening activities, and discussions to inform students and staff about sustainability ‘in a fun way’.
Improving the choice of vegan and vegetarian options in catering, assisting student associations with their sustainability efforts and improving the UT’s waste management. It is but a sample of the plans of the relatively new Green Hub Twente for this year. Coordinator Alex Baker talks about the plans, past efforts and role of the hub, as ‘the central platform for sustainability at the UT’.
The Student Union and Green Hub Twente challenge student houses to become more sustainable, with an ‘Eco Challenge’ that starts on Monday. Though the total amount of prize money is €3000, the organisers say that participating and inspiring matter, not winning.
