WHO WE ARE
The Hub is run by an enthusiastic team of Erasmus University students who are connected by their devotion to sustainability and making a meaningful difference in our university community.
Our ideas and projects evolve from the local issues we observe on campus, as well as the global issues we are personally passionate about. Our inspirations are not limited to our own observations and passions – for this reason we are always open to anyone who has an idea to connect with us, so we can realize the vision for a better future together.
CHAIRWOMAN. Sustainability means many things, but the most important aspect to me is the environmental impact. Every time people wonder how it is possible to live on this planet out of hunger and poverty, I remember Gandhi: “Here is enough for the need, not for the greed”.
INTERNAL MANAGER. During my whole life I have considered nature (especially the ocean) as something I deeply love. I always wanted to help people realize how important our planet is. One of my favorite quotes: “Once you see it you cannot unseen it, but until you see it it is invisible”.
OPERATION MANAGER. My passion for sustainability has grown over the past years and I felt the urge to do something less theoretical and make an impact, so I joined the ESH. I am super motivated to help the sustainable community on campus grow. Let’s make a change together!
EXTERNAL MANAGER. After being a part of many other student organizations in the past, I decided to use my acquired knowledge to help shape the sustainability student association of Erasmus University. It’s been a bumpy ride so far, but I’m enjoying the challenge!
MARKETING MANAGER. I like making people aware of the consequences of their behavior by showing how small changes can have a huge impact. In the marketing team I can facilitate a series of integrated actions leading to a sustainable competitive advantage.
ERASMUS SUSTAINABILITY DAYS MANAGER. By organizing and leading this event, I want to break barriers! So if you are intrigued and would like to participate, contact me! As R. Swan would say: “The greatest danger to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”.
ERASMUS SUSTAINABILITY DAYS MANAGER. With my master in Global Business and Sustainability combined with my position at the Hub I can put my knowledge into action in order to contribute to a more sustainable campus! I want to inspire students to be part of the change.
EURWARDROBE. Since I traveled China, I question my consumption behavior. I was shocked with the enormous piles of clothes in the landfills. Now I’m trying to pair my passion for fashion with a better understanding of the environmental impact of the clothing industry.
WASTE MANAGER + POST PLASTIC GENERATION. We all contribute to the world’s plastic problem, and sustainability is at the core of solving the issue. I want to help mitigating the impact of our university and achieving a higher level of awareness among students.
ERASMUS FOOD LAB FOOD MANAGER. I am involved with sustainable and ethical food consumption choices. I hope many students will be inspired to take the extra step and reconsider their choices when taking part in any of the events promoted by the Food Lab or the Edible EUR.
FOUNDER OF LET’S TALK TRASH. I am passionate about the energy transition, that’s why I started a podcast to share findings and talk with experts on relevant issues. The podcast aims to reach out to professionals, academics and students that are contributing to the transition of our society.
LET’S TALK TRASH LEAD WRITER. I’ve developed a keen interest in the environmental and social challenges that our planet is currently facing. I hope to combine my knowledge in economics with my passion for sustainability to contribute to a more sustainable world.
LET’S TALK TRASH AUDIO PRODUCER. I still have much to learn about sustainability, but I am trying to contribute by facilitating sustainability conscious dialogues through the medium of podcasting. My background in audio production is instrumental for the production of our podcast.
