Ruben Santos, Team Events:
” I joined the Green Office (GO) back in October 2015 at Team Events and remained there for about 8 months – 8 awesome months! Back then, as a complete foreigner to The Netherlands, I wanted to rebuild my social life as well as create an impact on a relevant matter. Given my interest in sustainability as well as the GO’s broadminded environment, I immediately felt welcome. If you would like to invest time in volunteering in a context where quirkiness and motivation are embraced, then do join the GO! It will become one of your favorite places at the VU Amsterdam. “

Hannah Rinne, Team Media:
” I was doing my exchange in Amsterdam at the VU and heard about Green Office in the introduction week. I was a little bit hesitant to join at first, after all I was not Dutch and I didn’t know anyone. However I decided to go to the first volunteer event because I was interested in sustainability, and I became part of the team Media. Afterwards, all I can say is that I recommend it for everyone interested in sustainability! At GO i met lots of wonderful, fun and smart people, I educated myself and friends at the VU in sustainability, I made an effort to help build a more sustainable future (both on and off campus) and most importantly I had a blast. Green Office is definitely a community I feel proud and happy to still be part of! “
