Working with hope on climate change
One of the greatest challenges of our time is to find answers to climate change. The various social cost-benefit analyses that currently exist often contradict each other due to complexity and radical uncertainty. This can easily lead to paralysis or polarisation. High time for a completely different approach: one based on hope. For the project ‘Joining forces in developing a programme of hope as response to climate change’, theologians, economists, psychologists and designers from VU Amsterdam and the UT have joined forces. The project is being financed from the internal call and developed within the focus area Talent for Societies.
Building the blue-green way
Katinka Quintelier is associate professor of Strategy and Ethics at the School of Business and Economics at VU Amsterdam. Within the impact coalition Creating Responsible Societies, she and a team of VU and UT researchers are investigating the possibilities of building blue-green (i.e. nature inclusive). A huge challenge because this requires a complete system change and a long-term focus.
New video for Creative Technology
Hot off the press: the new joint programme video for Creative Technology is ready. The video will be posted among others on the joint CreaTe site, on VU campus online and on the Creative Technology programme page of VU Amsterdam. We are very happy with the result and would love to hear your reactions.
RISE student team takes off on a high note
Developing re-usable biofuel rockets to clean up space debris. That is the ambitious mission of RISE (Rocketry Innovations and Space Engineering). RISE is a student team from the VU Amsterdam-UT bachelor's programme Mechanical Engineering. The team presented itself on the VU Amsterdam campus with their first test rocket, which was actually launched, to recruit fellow students to join the team.
