Last Thursday, 6 September 2018, we officially opened the Academic Year! This year's theme was "Climate change as a new business reality". We welcomed speakers on climate change and handed out awards to best students, lecturers and researchers.
With inspiring lectures from Marcel Beukeboom, Climate Envoy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Matthijs Bierman, Managing Director of Triodos Bank Nederland.
