Hi! My name is Lukas de Ruiter and besides being chair of SFSA I am also this year’s VVM ambassador. At VVM I am part of the VVM section on environmental ethics and the ambassadors’ group, or the “youth section”. In the section on environmental ethics, I helped organize a workshop at the National environment day VVM hosted in June about the value transition needed to secure a sustainable future society. See their website for more information on the National environment day. On top of that, I am now working with Marie- Thérèse and the SvM secretary to organize an upcoming career day, which will take place the 14th of September next year. We’ll be hosting a diverse set of companies and recruiters. The event is free of charge and a good opportunity to orient yourself on sustainable career opportunities and expand your network. Again, check out their website for more information.
In the youth section I worked with other ambassadors to figure out ways to best promote VVM amongst our networks and schedule interesting events for students to attend. VVM boasts an amazing collection of knowledge and expertise. Connecting students to the VVM network offers great opportunities for collaboration to better bridge the gap between education and professional development.
