25 APRIL – 27 MAY 2019
In order to raise awareness around sustainability at the university the Green Office (the university’s sustainability department) started a collaboration with artist associations Pulchri Studio and Vereniging Amstelland Kunst. As a part of this collaboration the artists have visited the Green Village, further the Green Office has given two workshops. The goal of this collaboration was to create an exhibition which merges two different perspectives on sustainability, engineering and art. The exhibition contains the art works of 22 different artists of which 6 were made in close collaboration with students from the TU Delft. Some of the art pieces are provocative, in the hope of making you think about how you can integrate sustainability in both your academic and personal life. This exhibition is a part of a larger exhibition which has travelled from The Hague, Pulchri Studio to Amsterdam, Amsterdam CBK, now to be exposed in our own library here at the TU Delft. Along with the art pieces you will find photos hanging in the library. These have been made for the Students4Sustainability photo contest. The subject of this photo contest is: “Contrast”.
As engineers we have the ability to shape the future of our society. Currently the Netherlands, together with Luxembourg and Malta, has one of the lowest shares of renewable energy of all EU countries (in 2017). Each EU member state has its own Europe 2020 target. 11 of the EU members already met their targets by the end of 2017. Again, the Netherlands, this time joined by France is the furthest away from their targets. This clearly shows the need for “Climate action”, the university’s dies theme this year.
So take a close look at this exhibition, get inspired, and see what Climate Action you can personally take on. We sincerely hope you will enjoy the exhibition.

Workshop European Innovation and Technology Raw Materials
22 MAY 2019 13:45 – 16:00 | LOCATION: TU DELFT LIBRARY
Open for everyone (30 persons max)
The separate transport of discarded electric and electronic devices from the organisation, often take a lot of time and effort. In this workshop you will learn how to take on this problem in a smarter and profitable manner.
The workshop will not only touch upon the financial value of old electronics but also the contribution to social and ecological values. This is often important with regard to the corporate social responsibility of your organisation. The workshop is especially suitable for companies that have a lot of discarded electronics on a yearly basis, such as big offices or production facilities.
The workshop gives een overview of the different possibilities. The participant will be encouraged to bring questions or casus from his/her organisation to the workshop.
This workshop is organized as a part of the BusiSource project of the European program “European innovation and Technology Raw Materials (EIT)”. The program has been set up to make Europe more resistant to material shortages, and to make a significant contribution to the competitiveness of the European employment.
