Challenges and difficulties are growth opportunities.
I have the fortune of counting with a driven and well-prepared team that will make an outstanding impact this year.
We have learned from the obstacles and started an ambitious plan to restructure and professionalize the Green Office VU.
During my lead, I will further consolidate our Green Office as a role model for new GO’s in The Netherlands and abroad.
Join our dream for a more sustainable VU today!
Coming from a developing country, I have seen that more and more people are challenging ways on how we produce and consume resources from the environment.
This is why our work at the Green Office VU is important because we believe that every one has the influence to drive sustainability and create cultural change towards a greener community through research.
It is time that we focus on how we can meet the needs of today without compromising the ability to meet the needs of tomorrow.
This year, I am determined to shine a spotlight on sustainability through inclusive and diverse educational activities.
My ethos is that, in academia, we need to patiently and kindly paint a picture of urgency around climate change – because, otherwise, it might be too late.
I want the Vrije Universiteit and its student body to put nature first in their thinking and planning irrespective of their field of interest. And this can only be achieved through successful partnerships between all the relevant stakeholders.
Together we can give Planet Earth the space it needs to thrive! Looking forward to what we can achieve in this year of apparent stillness!
I am beyond excited to have joined the Green Office VU, because I strongly believe that by using the power of social media we are able to connect students and the community and create awareness.
I hope to reach as many people as possible and make them understand why being sustainable is essentially the new “sexy”!
