Sustainability and Co-participation Conference
Your year as a co-participationer has been on the way for some time now, either in the University Council, a Faculty Council, an Institutes Council, an Employee Council or in the Program Committee of your program. Hopefully, you have made a great start and are looking forward to putting your best foot forward this coming year!
During your year in co-participation, you will be discussing and planning along with the Program Boards, the Faculty Boards of the Executive Board about various things. Some of you will deal with the quality and the contents of education, others will focus on budgets and some will have to discuss plans for the near and far future (or, all of the above!). All these topics could (and must?!) include sustainability on some level, and that is where you come in!
To help you on your way, the Leiden University Green Office (LUGO) and the University Council (UR) together organize a conference where sustainability and co-participation will meet! What can you do in your position when it concerns sustainability? What part does sustainability play in your education? Do you have plans to, for example, make your faculty more sustainable? And do you know how to present these plans and get them going? At this conference, we would like to discuss these topics and questions with each other, as co-participationers, and to share ideas and tips and tricks to be able to actually get to work.
The conference will be held online on Friday 27 November 2020, from 13:00 until 15:30. The program will commence with a brief talk by a sustainability expert, after which you’ll have a discussion in separate groups, either with your fellow OLC-members or faculty councilmembers (see document). We will finish the conference with a joint conclusion, to further discuss the day and ideas. More details in the attachment.
