    • The platform provides a positive environment for every member of the VUB community to make constructive suggestions for improving VUB policies, services, facilities, and communication. In this way, it wants to provide a complement to existing information points and hotlines, and offer a tool to working groups that want to adopt a participatory approach. VUB introduced the platform, which is still a pilot project, to try to engage students in the first place.


    • Our ambition is to send hundreds of cards to Vida, dr. Djalali’s wife, in Sweden. With statements of support for her and her husband, with messages of hope, and to show that we continue our fight for Ahmadreza.


      Through Amnesty International, our campaign will be communicated to the Iranian media. And we will of course also inform the Iranian embassy about our card-writing campaign.

    • The Food Assembly network wants to provide everyone with tasty local produce and support the sustainable agriculture of the future. Via the Food Assembly you buy vegetables, fruit, bread, meat, cheese and various other products directly from the farmers. This way, the network reduces the circuits between producers and consumers and thus offers a counterbalance to industrialized agriculture, which is mainly focused on mass production.
