The foundation Students4Sustainability (S4S) is a student organization with the goal of motivating TU Delft students to apply innovative technologies in real life, thus facilitating the transition to a more sustainable world. With 100% of the money received from our donators, we give students the opportunity to make a difference by setting up technical projects in developing countries.
We live in a time of large changes: The world population continuously grows, and the climate is changing at an unprecedented rate. Sustainable technologies could provide a way to battle against the consequences hereof.
The mission of S4S is to stimulate sustainability on different levels, on a small scale as well as worldwide. S4S wants to inform and inspire students about the possibilities that sustainable technologies have to offer, by organizing activities such as lectures and workshops. This way, students are challenged to think outside the box and generate new ideas of how their knowledge can be put into practice.
Subsequently, S4S can offer these students the chance to realize their ideas on a global scale in the form of a development project. On the one hand by offering them financial support, on the other hand by sharing experience and knowledge. This way, the growing gap between Western countries and developing countries can be overcome.

It was the latter, because of which we were very relieved. The first time we tried the product loosened from the mould at once. After inspecting the product thoroughly it was time to test the sound…
