Join us for the opening of the Pimp your Campus garden on 10/03/2020!

(25-02-2020) On Tuesday, March 10, the start-up of the new garden between S4 and S5 at Campus Sterre is planned.

On Tuesday March 10, we would like you to join us at Campus Sterre for the start-up of the new garden between buildings S4 and S5. This renovation is part of 'Pimp your Campus', a project that responds to the rhythm and needs of the users of the campus. The new garden is work in progress, unfinished, a place where we take matters in our own hands, breaking out asphalt and prick in green.

By creating 'community places', we want to make it possible for staff, students and visitors to meet one another and to sport. Pingpong, soccer, BBQs, a lounge: these are just a few examples of what is already there or coming up soon.

Join us for an afternoon of activities on March 10!


Programme:

  • 12:00 – 16:30: Lend a helping hand at the Pimp your Campus garden.
  • 17:00 – 18.00: Inauguration of the running track around the campus where the rector and the chief logistics administrator welcome you to join them for the inauguration run at 5 pm! Followed by a run organised by the student organisations.
  • 18:00: Inauguration of the garden and kick-off of the Pimp your Campus sponsoring campaign with a reception offered by the Faculty.

The student organisations will sell food and drinks during the activities.

Sponsor your campus
The Dean's Office of the Faculty has received financial compensation from the university for using its office spaces more efficiently and invests that budget in innovating its campuses. To continue improving the campuses, your help is also welcome. Let us know your ideas for making your campus greener and give unnecessary parking places and sidewalks a new life, let us know where you see opportunities to turn grey into green. Become owner of your own ideas by sponsoring the project. You can do that on a personal basis, but also as a group, as a department  

I want to sponsor
Great plan! Transfer the amount of your choice (25 euro/m²) to bank account BE26 3900 9658 0329 (BIC: BBRUBEBB) mentioning 'Pimp your Campus', your name and your email address in the payment reference. As of a donation of 40 euros you will receive a receipt for tax deductions ('fiscaal attest').

I've sponsored. So, what happens now??
In April we're going to get to work with the number of square meters sponsored. With the sponsors, the green manager and the campus architect will look for those places where the removal of asphalt and concrete has the most added value.
