Working group ‘Gewoon Vega’
The working group ‘Gewoon Vega’ consists of Natalie van Dis, Tiemen Wagenvoort, Maaike de Leeuw, Mardie Vermunt and Julia Ertl. These students of various degree programmes devote themselves in creative and positive ways to let the university community eat vegetarian food more often, with the goal of reducing the ecological footprint. They developed an attractive presentation of the vegetarian menu, combined with information dissemination. This approach led to the sale of significantly more vegetarian products, their research shows.
