In November 2015, master's student Sustainable Development Brendy Batenburg won the Sustainability Challenge 2015 as part "Team Waterschappelijk".
In the Sustainability Challenge, five corporations and government institutions set sustainability challenges. Then, one hundred students in 25 teams get the chance to handle one sustainability challenge within two months. After a final round in which five teams competed with each other, Brendy's team won with their idea for an innovative, water-purifying greenhouse, ‘The Green ROOTine’. This greenhouse makes water purification more efficient and socially attractive.
