Sustainability Forum to be staged at The Hague University of Applied Sciences
The Academy of Masters and Professional Courses of The Hague University of Applied Sciences will host a Sustainability Forum at the main campus on Thursday, March 6, from 4 to 6pm.
The Forum will welcome the Academy’s students, lecturers, staff, alumni and business relations. It will bring together expertise representing three key and interdependent perspectives on sustainability: industry, scientific research and the developing world.
The speakers are:
- Dr. Nathalie van der Put, a senior global marketing manager at Unilever and a member of its sustainability team. In 2013, the World Environment Center ranked Unilever best in the world in sustainable development.
- Dr. Derk Loorbach, Professor at Erasmus University. Dr. Loorbach has published more than 100 scientific articles on sustainability and is an internationally recognized leader of the transition management approach to sustainability.
- Peter d’Angremond, executive director of the Max Havelaar Foundation in The Netherlands, the first Fairtrade labelling organization in the world. The Fairtrade movement seeks to provide farmers in the developing world with a dignified standard of living.
The Sustainability Forum will start with short presentations by each speaker, followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session with the audience.
The Academy of Masters & Professional Courses, which offers a number of study programmes that include aspects of sustainability, attaches great importance to sustainable development, because it embraces many of the crucial challenges of our time.
