Show Your Stripes Day: join UT’s sustainability community

This Friday, June 21 is Show Your Stripes Day: an annual day to grow awareness about human-caused climate change, its impact, and what we as a society can do to ensure a sustainable future for the people and places we love. The Climate Stripes, or Warming Stripes, designed by prof. Ed Hawkins at the University of Reading, represent the increases in temperature seen throughout the past 150 years. The stripes serve as a stark reminder of the need for urgent action to combat the climate crisis.

At University of Twente, we feel a great responsibility to help find solutions for the climate crisis. Through our research and education, we want to contribute to a sustainable society. We also look at the impact of our own business operations: together with our students, employees, suppliers and other partners, we take action to make sustainability a natural part of our daily lives. Below, you will find some examples of what is happening at UT. Do you want to contribute? Check out the links and join the community!
