Hi all! My name is Nynke, and I am doing my masters at the UG in International Political Economy. I have been around in Groningen for quite some time now since I have also done my Bachelors in International Relations here. It is just too hard to leave the city! From September onwards, I will coordinate and support all the sustainability ambassadors with their projects and events to make their faculties and the university more sustainable. I am looking forward to doing all of this!
After completing my bachelor’s degree in Psychology in Amsterdam last summer, I moved to Groningen to start the Master Environmental Psychology at the RUG. At the Green Office, I strive to increase awareness for sustainability among students and staff by organising events and activities. I am looking forward to the next year and I hope to see all of you at the next Green Office event!
Hello everyone! I am Robin, one of the new student assistents of the Green Office and I am doing my masters in Biomedical Engineering. Even though the Green Office already exists for almost 4 years, I have only known the Green Office for a small part of that. That, plus the fact that sustainability needs more attention, motivates me to inform people about what is happening in terms of sustainability at the UG. I will be taking on the position of Communication and I will try to reach as many students and staff with our informative and fun events!
