About the Green Office
The Green Office for KU Leuven is a sustainability organisation for and by students. The mission of the Green Office is to make KU Leuven and its population more sustainable, in all its facets. Integrated in the university’s Sustainability Office, students and staff members work together towards this goal through several projects, events and campaigns.
What do we do?
We organize our own projects and events to spread information and raise awareness about sustainability.
We offer a forum for experts to explain and showcase their insights, while sparking off a fresh debate with the university population.
We bridge the gap between students, partner organizations and the university through our network.
We engage students interested in sustainability with our membership program.
Who are we?
The Green Office team is composed of job students and one staff member. Every semester, we invite up to 40 student volunteers to join us as members in one of our project and working groups.
