About Green Office VU

Since 2014 the Green Office VU has been the sustainability platform at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam(VU). A university is place where students acquire new knowledge and experiences, but also where new habits are made. Therefore universities should act as drivers of sustainability and create a cultural change; a green movement. ‘Sustainable higher education implies that the critical activities of a higher education institution are ecologically sound, socially just and economically viable and that they will continue to be so for future generations’, according to the Association of University Leaders for a Sustainable Future.
