In September 2015 the United Nations released the Sustainable Development Goals stressing the urgency to take action. Being more sustainable means taking into account the needs of today by not compromising the needs of future generations. Operating business as usual, this principle cannot be followed. Thus, a change is needed and everyone should take part in this.
Together with Erasmus Involved and its partnering organisations Green EUR, we present the second edition of the Erasmus Sustainability Days in 2017. Our goal is to engage students to become more familiar with sustainability and eventually inspire them to be part of the change.
The Erasmus Sustainability Days 2017 will take place between the 28th and the 30th of March 2017 on the campus of Erasmus University Rotterdam. During the three days of the event all students can sign up for various events including a fair, social drinks and presentations. You will have the chance to get in touch with start-ups and multinationals, with speakers as well as directors, that have committed themselves to being a frontrunner in sustainability. For more information regarding the participating companies and the events please refer to the program page.
The Erasmus Sustainability Days Committee is formed by a group of students of the Erasmus University Rotterdam deeply concerned with the topic of sustainability. It is the aim of the committee to bring this topic closer to all students of this university by engaging them to be part of the journey of change. The committee that organizes the event consists of six members that can be viewed at the commitee page.
The committee, together with Erasmus Involved and all partnering organisations are looking forward to having you at the second edition of the Erasmus Sustainability Days from the 28th until the 30th of March 2017.
