Are you passionate about the planet and keeping it liveable for ourselves, future generations and other species? You might think green jobs are technical jobs, but not nothing could be further from the truth. Sustainable development is more than green technology, biology and environmental sciences. We need green stories, smart communication, political action, philosophical and religious rethinking, pre-empt climate conflicts, and dive into the past to see what we can learn from pre-capitalist economies. Here’s where you and your Humanities degree come in! Join this edition of Your Perspective and learn from Humanities alumni about their work in climate & sustainability issues.
Sarah Herforth is Marketing and Communication Coordinator for Het Groene Brein (The Green Brain), a network of scientists that help companies with their quest for the circular economy. She is also the brain behind Sarah’s keuken(a vegan food blog) which she founded during her studies Liberal Arts and Sciences. We’ll see if we can get some yummy recipes from Sarah!
Speaking of food, our second speaker Charlotte van den Arend worked as a campaigner for Food Cabinet which is a company aimed at creative campaigns to promote sustainable, fair and healthy food consumption. Charlotte (Bachelor Communication & Information Sciences) was also active for the Slow Food Youth Network Nederland. Perhaps we will hear more about Charlotte’s next (green?) job!
Lilian van Hove is one of our Applied Ethics alumni and now works as Programme Manager & Consultant for New Economy In this role she is a partner for companies who want to rethink their products or services in way that makes them align with a sustainable economy. Her holistic approach is also reflected by her work as a yoga instructor.
