Sustainability – made in Maastricht

Sustainability – made in Maastricht

Footprint films, eco-map, teaching, consultation, discussions, a recycling system for bikes of exchange students, joint order of biological food, 'green' parties... the list goes on and on. The student organisations at the Sustainability BBQ at the Landbouwbelang Friday night presented many different ideas. What they all had in common: they were aimed at making the world more sustainable, either ecologically, socially or economically. Sustainability is a broad term, also knows David Kulinski, member of the Oikos organisation which combines sustainability and economics. Kulinski explains that a fair treatment of employees for instance is a step towards a more sustainable world as well. However, the student organisations mainly have smaller projects, starting with an e-paper exchange and the replacement of paper towels with air dryers in the Universities. “First of all it is important to raise the awareness of these issues”, says Christopher Sauer from the Maastricht University Green Office. It goes without saying that the info-market at the Landbouwbelang served that purpose as well. Next to the info-market, visitors could enjoy a vegetarian barbeque.
