De Brug (REC)

Do you want help make the University of Amsterdam more sustainable? During the sustainability working conference on 17 November, we will build on the Sustainability White PaperExternal link, the document that sets out UvA’s sustainability objectives and measures.

Sustainable entrepreneur, National Energy Commissioner and Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of Science Ruud Koornstra will open the conference in the morning with a keynote speech, followed by various work sessions within two tracks. At the end of the morning, there will be a panel discussion on sustainability in education with deans from several faculties. We’ll conclude the morning with a vegan lunch. 

Two tracks: teaching and operational management 

The conference will include two tracks: during the teaching track, participants can share their thoughts on the role of sustainability in education and how sustainability can be given an appropriate place in the curriculum for all UvA students. During the operational management track, we’ll continue working on plans to make the UvA more sustainable: how can we reduce our air travel and save more energy?
