Research-based, interdisciplinary circular solutions into practice, that is what Centre for Sustainability stands for. The student branch of CfS connects students from three universities with each other, researchers and practitioners. We organise various lectures, thesis markets and practical events, such as the Sustainable Innovation into Practice (SIP) Summer School.

JFR is the Judicial Faculty Association of the Erasmus School of Law.


On Tuesday from 17:00 till 19:00, CfS and JFR are organising an expert panel discussion. Together with experts from different disciplines, several statements related to the transition to a circular economy will be discussed with all the attending students.

 The theme is Education vs. Regulation. Should we focus on education or should we regulate and innovate? Can we change people’s behaviour fast enough? What is the role of businesses? Is the Convention on Climate Change going to change anything?


Emma Clemens will lead the discussion. Emma is the United Nations Youth Representative for Sustainable Development and student at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Her primary focus is integrating sustainability into the education of students and children. She has first-hand experience in dealing with legislation makers and policy makers from a student perspective. What is our role as students? Should we demand more education?

Anne Huibrechtse from Deloitte is one of our experts. Anne is Sustainable Leader within Deloitte Risk Advisory. She has over 20 years of experience in both the private and public sector enabling cooperation between organizations within the challenge of sustainable transitions. How can we use sustainability as a business opportunity? What is the effect of regulation on business?

Ellen Hey is another one of our experts and Professor of Public International Law. She has extensive knowledge on the Convention on Climate Change and often publishes on Environmental Law. Moreover, she has worked for various governmental and international organizations, such as the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, the U.N. Development Program, the U.N. Environment Program and the World Bank.

Our last expert is yet to be announced, please keep an eye out on the event page!
