Description of the kick-off event
Approximately 50 students participated at the Act for Change LAB kick-off event on May 17-18 2018. Motivated by their curiosity and sensitivity to sustainable initiatives, participants have been able to exchange initial ideas and meet other potential project leaders with whom they could collaborate.
A big thanks to the participants and a great summer to you all!
