Pitch, Team Up, and Make It Happen!

Environmental Humanities Center Birthday Party

‘Pitch, Team Up, Make it Happen’

 the Environmental Humanities Center turns 2

Date: Dec. 13, 18-21
Location: VU Amsterdam, Main Building, 16A00 (‘Kerkzaal’)

This month, the Environmental Humanities Center is turning two years old (already…). Next to celebrating with drinks and snacks, a brief review and outlook, and chance for conversation, we invite our members to propose activities, research, events, reading groups, interventions (from tiny to large), which you could imagine to organize – together with others. After some inspirational ‘best practice talks’, you’ll have three minutes to pitch your idea. If you find at least two allies to team up with you, your project is ‘in’ and will be featured and supported by the EHC.

No obligations, you can also just come, celebrate, and chat with us… everybody is invited, feel free to bring your friends and allies.
