Green Growth

On 5 September the Green Office will start the course Green Growth. During the course teachers and professionals from the work field will inspire you with stories about sustainability. They will show you how they have integrated sustainability in their personal and/or professional lives and how you can do the same.

The course consists of 7 lectures and excursions. We will go on an excursion to the Eemshaven, where you get a guided tour. We will also visit a local farm to hear how they integrate sustainability there. The focus of the course is on interaction, discussion and critical thinking. After completing this course you will be full of inspiration and knowledge about sustainability and how to contribute to sustainable society!
