October 25, 2018 Sustainability Week 2019 0

Are you passionate about sustainability? Do you see opportunities to make Leiden University more sustainable? Are you able to inspire, engage and empower students and staff to cooperate? This is your chance to contribute!

The Leiden University Green Office and Green Keys are the platform within the university where students and employees shape and execute innovative sustainable ideas. LUGO tries to make Leiden University more sustainable by contributing to the reduction of its ecological footprint. Furthermore they create awareness about sustainability amongst students and staff. Green Keys is a group of students who work to engage other students in sustainable projects and initiatives in and around Leiden and Leiden University. The goal of Green Keys is to educate fellow students on sustainable topics in the form of activities such as the Leiden University Sustainability week.

The sustainability week will take place in February 2019 and will consist of a multitude of sustainable activities, lectures, and workshops in which all students can participate. This week will deal with what sustainability is, how students can implement it in their own life, and what is already happening concerning sustainability. To help us with the planning of the second sustainability week, we are looking for enthusiastic students who enjoy initiating new projects and strategies, implementing these, and communicating about them to students and staff. Positions require about 3 hours per week and will be voluntarily.

What we offer:

  • An opportunity to develop and show initiative;
  • An opportunity to gain professional experience and personal development;
  • Being part of a motivated team of students;
  • Professional support from staff members;
  • A chance to get immersed in the matter of practical sustainability;
  • And the chance to see how an exciting project develops, from start to finish!
