Panel Discussion

The student team panel hosted six students from the TU Eindhoven’s well known student teams and spin-offs. The panellists got the opportunity to discuss their personal opinions and experiences with issues relating to sustainability,  their personal motivations; the contributions they wish to make and their thoughts on how such projects can work within or against the current systems. The panellists included one participant from each of: Lightyear One, Team CASA, Solid, CORE, Team Energy, and Virtue having Beatrix Bos as a moderator.

Q&A Sustainable Fashion

Diana Leeflang, known for her YouTube channel Disfordazzle, which attracted more than 250,000 followers over the years, is joined us for Green Week.
