"When I applied for a job here, I looked at whether Radboud University was really serious about implementing sustainable practices or whether these were just empty words. It was partly through the discussions with the Executive Board that I soon realised that the university was serious about its intentions. Since I started working here, this perception has only increased. The sustainability programme has received strong support, as evidenced by the ‘You Have a Part to Play’ campaign for sustainability. As the university has pointed out, this gives everyone the opportunity to contribute, and with the inclusion of thousands of students and academics, this is already happening in abundance. From public drinking water taps and vegan cooking courses for the restaurant and catering staff to a new course on the Sustainable Development Goals or high-level research on biodiversity; there are so many good examples. The university is not only a traditional institution, it is also an innovative institution. It’s wonderful to work in a place that is helping to shape the future."
