Sustainability challenges on campus

From waste management to material flow management

Wageningen Campus is continuously trying to become more sustainable. Multiple initiatives on campus are working on some form of material flow management, which work towards the goal of becoming as sustainable as possible on campus. On February 2, several speakers will showcase their research, solution or product. If you're interested in the topic, and/or want to connect with other interested people, don't hesitate to join us to talk about these challenges!
