YOUR SUSTAINABLELIFE STARTS HERE
The Erasmus Sustainability Hub is a collaborative effort of sustainable student initiatives based on the Erasmus University campus. Together, we organize events, foster student ideas and promote sustainability.
We want to accelerate all the efforts to implement sustainable practices throughout the campus, inspiring a long term change in people’s habits. Check our content to be always updated about our initiatives and events.
We have many long-term projects to empower students and the university staff to drive change towards more sustainable practices. We are always promoting events in the campus and keeping the discussion open via our different social media channels.
erasmus food lab
A research lab and a cooking studio aiming to contribute to a societal transition by exploring food options, eating habits and understanding the impact of sustainable consumption. The lab brings students, researchers, cooks, food entrepreneurs and professionals together to find ways for mainstreaming and marketing plant-based foods.
Every Wednesday the lab organizes cooking classes in a professional kitchen to teach how to make your food choices more sustainable.
post plastic generation
An action campaign promoting the reduction of the single-use plastic at the campus. The group tackle the problem by discussing with students about irresponsible consumption habits.
A group engaged in utilizing green spaces in the campus to produce fruits, nuts and vegetables in a sustainable way. The Campus Garden is at the east side of the tennis courts. The goal is to educate responsible citizens of the world. Growing your own food is key to sustainability because:
- Creates a culture of health and vibrant ecosystems
- Provides habitat for a wide diversity of life
- Captures carbon
- Contributes to the cycling and filtering water to drinkable quality.
- Plant-rich environments have beneficial effects on our well-being!
A permanent clothing swap by and for EUR students. At Erasmus University, we are 29,790 students. On average, we own 95 garments, of which 40% are (almost) never worn. That makes more than 1 million items, which just gather dust in our closets.
The benefits of sharing our unwanted clothes includes decluttering your house, redefining your wardrobe, decreasing the demand for new clothes, and reducing toxic materials required to produce new textiles. The idea is to inspire and demonstrate how to create unique styles using second hand items donated by fellow students.
