Yashna Pande

Project Coordinator

Yashna works as Project Officer at the Centre for Living Labs Utrecht University (CLU) at the Sustainability Office. CLU bring together students, researchers, staff and local-societal contributors with the aim of using the campus as a living testing ground to co-create solutions for contemporary sustainability challenges. They are a testament to what we, as a university-community are capable of, when we join forces. Read more here.

Prior to this, Yashna worked for the UU Student Development Team, where she co-organised the student wellbeing week(s) November 2023 and subsequently the UU-wide Careers Day 2024. 

In 2022, in close collaboration with the Student Wellbeing Team, Yashna also co-created and facilitated the first english-speaking peer support groups for UU students, on the topics of grief and loneliness. For this contribution, she and her team were awarded with the UU 2023 Student Award for Social Impact. These groups have since, become a structural part of the University, with more in development. They can be found through here.
