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”.
OPERATIONS MANAGER. I aim to have a bigger positive impact in both my personal- and professional life and inspire others to do the same. I believe this can be accomplished by building and growing a community that, together, strives for a more sustainable future.
MARKETING & PROMOTION MANAGER. The Hub has motivated me to live a more sustainable life! By being involved, I want to remind our community that together we can make a change and together we can live more consciously. Every step counts, and I am determined to inspire others to change the world with us.
FASHION & COMMUNITY MANAGER. To me, sustainability means to care for our planet, our people, and the future. This comes in many forms and we need to all do our part. I want to support the EUR community by spreading awareness on how to lead sustainable lives, make conscious decisions, and grow together.
FOOD & AGRICULTURE MANAGER. I believe changing our habits is key to a greener future. Food is a basic need and that’s why eating responsibly is so impactful. To decrease your environmental footprint, we aim at providing simple, fun and effortless alternatives you can implement everyday.
WASTE MANAGER. The issue of waste is the consequence of our collective action and thus requires collective effort to overcome it. Sustainability is at the core of solving it. My aim is to engage as many students as possible, increase their awareness and together work on effective solutions to make a change.
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.
