LUGO present at the HOP week

For the first time Den Haag has its own introduction week; the HOP-week! On another beautiful summer’s day, we attended the HOP-into your future festival, to represent the LUGO.

At the festival students could take a photo in our ‘sustainable photo booth’. Students could win a dinner for four people a the newly opened restaurant Instock by taking a crazy photo. Instock only uses food that is passed it’s sell by date, and would otherwise have been thrown away. For the photo they could get dressed up with some of the crazy attributes and outfits we had brought with us. Besides this they had to pick a sustainable resolution for the coming semester. They could pick resolutions such as ‘I will to eat less meat’ or ‘I’m going to recycle more’.

This was the winning picture:


It was so nice to meet all the interested students and see them seriously thinking about what resolution would work best for them this year! With what sustainable resolution will you HOP into this semester?
