Planet

The world needs you. Ideally, to make it work differently. Because, let’s face it, the world’s in heaps of trouble at the moment. Biodiversity, the climate, air quality, animal rights, etc. What motivates you? Because you can do something about it here and now.

"PRESERVE AND CHERISH THE PALE BLUE DOT, IT'S THE ONLY HOME WE'VE EVER KNOWN" - CARL SAGAN

At the VUB, dozens of scientists, students and staff put that insight into practice every day. What about you? What drives you? Be inspired or take action yourself!
