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.
In their laudation (pdf), the jury indicates to be touched by the group's enthusiasm, resourcefulness, involvement and perseverance. The group shows other students how inspiring and activating studying can be. Research has shown that their approach has led to the sale of significantly more vegetarian products. The jury hopes for and actually counts on a continuation of this project.
