LUGO present at OWL

The final introduction week which we attended was the OWL introduction week for international students. On yet another sunny day day (we wonder what this is due to) we represented the LUGO on the first day of the OWL week. On the city tour for the international students, we were the first stop.

Standing in front of the Pieterskerk the international students could take a photo in our ‘sustainable’ photobooth with their new group and guides. Just as in the previous week they could get dressed up in some crazy outfits and pick one of the sustainable resolutions, such as ‘I’m going to recycle more’ and ‘I will eat less meat’, for the coming semester.

Besides the sustainable photobooth the students could also bike some smoothies for their group on the Smoothiebikes. This gave the international students who were nervous about getting on a bike a possibility to try it out!
We really enjoyed hearing all about the international students sustainable experiences from their  home country!

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?
