Introducing: Joey Koning

10 May 2017

My name is Joey Koning and I’m the newest student assistent at the Green Office. As a student in spatial sciences I’m trained to keep an eye on the future, where climate change and sustainability will play an important role. A famous Dutch politician recently phrased it beautifully: as young people, we have the most interest in a clean and liveable future, which makes educating students on the issue of climate change so important. What I hope to achieve at the Green Office is that students will no longer wonder what sustainability is, but rather work on picking it up themselves and ensuring our common future. I’m currently working on a number of different projects, varying from making inventory of sustainable research at the university to mapping out the various sustainable companies in the city, and much more. I’m looking forward to tackling sustainability in practice and hope to have an inspiring, educational and mostly fun time at the Green Office.

    Cold winters not caused by Arctic climate change

    Recent studies into the relationship between decreases in sea ice in the Arctic and ice-cold winters in the mid-latitudes, like the Polar Vortex cold waves in North America, seem to suggest that such a connection does indeed exist. However, the mechanisms...
