What we do

2020-2021

Every Monday a surprising package of veggies and fruit? All students and staff members of KU Leuven can order a veggie bag online and pick it up at the Green Office.

The foodies of the Green Office. They look for sustainable ways of cooking and invite students to the Green Office for cooking workshops. Want to participate?

Fixing your stuff in a cosy setting, that’s what the Green Office Repair Hub wants you to do. You can also come along for workshops and repair cafés.

The Green Office is also active in Brussels, organizing workshops and setting up sustainable projects for all KU Leuven students in Brussels.

Biodiversity and wellbeing go hand in hand. That’s why the BEE Positive team has taken on the task of promoting the impact of biodiversity on our daily lives.

Save the world. Write a thesis. The Green Office Living Lab encourages students to write a thesis with impact by connecting students and sustainable topics.

Students, companies and organizations are brought together at our Job Fair, which is part of the greater Sustainability Week. Want to know more about a green lifestyle?

Past Projects
