Meet the team

Green Office Wageningen is run by a team of six green-minded coordinators and an enthusiastic group of volunteers.

Coordinators

Linde Berg
Green Office Manager

My main task is to coordinate the team and support them with all the different projects of the Green Office. I work closely together with both students and staff and I am very happy to be part of this motivated group of green-minded people. We are a good team and I am convinced that we can take some important steps towards a more sustainable university together.
 

Valentina Verduchi
Communication & Outreach Coordinator

I am interested in spreading sustainability even more around campus. I am looking forward to connecting with you when you have an innovative idea for improving sustainability at WUR.

Robin van der Sluijs
Education & Research Coordinator

I did my bachelor in environmental sciences, with a minor in sustainability education & communication. I am currently in the last phase of my master environmental sciences. My internship focuses on developing a MOOC about sustainability and my thesis is on developing sustainability competencies for university teachers. I love being able to combine my study interests and personal interests at the green office. I hope to improve sustainability of  education at the WUR and to contribute to a university that creates future sustainability change-makers and leaders! 

Tasneemah Potmis
Food & Health Coordinator

Currently, I am following the master Molecular Nutrition & Toxicology and I finished the bachelor Nutrition & Health, both at the WUR. Being part of the Green Office has allowed me to learn a lot about different food-related areas at the university and made it possible to implement changes and have a real impact towards a more sustainable university. I am very excited to put into practice my background in food and health while actively working towards sustainable food on campus. My current focus is to make food and beverage practices at WUR more sustainable.
Since food and health are both areas where sustainability can be improved even more, do not hesitate to contact me for ideas! 

Rajas Shinde
Energy & IT Coordinator

I am a second-year master’s student in Environmental Technology.  Energy use reduction and sustainable energy transition are the main goals I work on in the Green Office team. Energy being a key player in sustainability, there’s a lot we can do in this regard to make WUR even more sustainable. So if you have any innovative ideas feel free to approach us, and we will help you implement them!

Sonja Greil
Community Coordinator

Last year in February, I started my master’s in Forest and Nature conservation at the WUR. Besides the study, I was looking for some practical involvement with sustainability and came across the Green Office. Excited about the contribution they do to make WUR more sustainable, I applied and was very happy to be joining the team as the community coordinator working closely with the volunteers, employees and other organisations from the Green Active Network.
