The sustainability week is the second edition from October Monday 10 until Thursday 13 During this week the Green Office will provide several events to inspire students at THUAS to become more sustainable! See the different events down below.
Sustainable University Contest
Monday - Thursday
How can THUAS improve on Sustainability? If you consider that there are 27.000 students and 2.000 employees you can imagine that there is an opportunity to make an impact. During this week you can contact the Green Office through mail, Instagram or in person. Share your idea with the Board. The best idea will get a sustainable gift on Thursday!
Monday & Tuesday
Did you know that fashion produces a lot of carbon emissions? The estimates are around 10 procent. And that is not strange considering that the fashion industry produces about 100 to 150 billion items of clothing per year. Shopping for sustainable fashion is a great way to contribute to a sustainable planet. But repairing your clothing also is! Join us in the Sewing activity. You will learn the basics to repair and make new clothing items in 10 minutes.
