The Green Office consists of a team of employees and four student assistants. The the Green Office has a Sounding Board (since 2014) that provides the organisation with advice and that monitors the activities and ambitions of the Green Office.
We often work on projects together with student organisations, colleagues of other departments and the faculties and external parties. Also, we are supported by volunteers and student ambassadors.

Sustainable tip: Take a holiday closer to home! Flying is one of the most impactful things you can do for the environment, so take the train or bus! Additional benefit: you get to enjoy the changing scenery while on your way to your destination.

Sustainable tip: Try to check out some vintage shops, before you decide to buy new. Groningen had a lot of nice second hand shops, you can find them on the City Map of the Green Office!
Nina ter Beest
Student assistant Communication
Sustainable tip: Buy second-hand clothing! Not only is it a great feeling to find that original vintage piece that only youwill wear, it's also very eco-friendly. Buying vintage clothes lowers carbon emissions, saves water and reduces waste.
