Utrecht Science Week: Tuesday 1 October is the Dag van de Duurzaamheid

On Tuesday 1 October, the Dag van de Duurzaamheid will be organised by HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht as part of Utrecht Science Week. A great programme has been created, with plenary parts, workshops, a Green Market and a festive closing on the sustainability square.

Worldwide, the urgency is felt to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and growing inequality. Higher education is also increasingly focusing on this. The Dag van de Duurzaamheid is there to look together at how sustainable ambitions can be shaped, with an eye to the future.   

This year's theme is: a social and fair sustainability transition. With the overarching question: how do we work together towards a sustainable and fair society in which everyone can participate? We will discuss this and come up with concrete applications related to the theme.   

The programme

This year's programme consists of the following parts:

10.30-12.00 – Plenary programme; including:

  • Keynote by Eva Rovers (writer, speaker and director of Bureau Burgerberaad).

  • Panel discussions led by chairman of the day Hajar Yagkoubi (former UN youth representative, speaker and presenter).

13.00-14.30 - Workshop round (workshops tp be completed)
