Shape the future by paving the way!

As Waste manager you represent the waste pillar and all waste related topics at the Erasmus Sustainability Hub. The waste manager position primarily entails managing and empowering the waste committee. This means being an engaging and open-minded leader, facilitating, motivating and supporting your team with resources for them to realize their ideas. It is very important that you lead by example but also allow for freedom within the team. As a committee manager, it is crucial to delegate tasks accordingly, while also updating your committee with the Hub’s developments. You are responsible for continuously promoting and advocating for sustainable waste management at our university and engaging students with sustainable consumption. Furthermore, you will also monitor already existing projects such as cup sharing, world cleanup day and rethink waste week. 

Secondly, because you are representing the waste pillar at the ESH, you will be giving out advice to the university and other student associations on the topic of waste. Consulting for the university and student associations may include reduction of waste and its management, plastic consumption and production, waste management projects at the university, and/or zero waste campus challenges. Moreover, you will also represent and foster the activist side of the hub, such as collaborations with Extinction Rebellion or working alongside Friday For Future Nederland. Mobilizing an activist part of the hub is essential in highlighting the urgency of action.  

Finally, alongside the board, you are expected to be an active player in contributing to the overall hub strategy and actively helping the hub grow and evolve. Being a waste manager it is also expected that you take on new challenges and expand the waste pillar at the hub.
