Students4Sustainability is a student organization with one very clear goal: investing in sustainable technologies in Third world countries. S4S invests in innovative, sustainable technical projects and promotes the application of sustainable technology in the life and work of the future generation engineers.
The circumstances in developing countries offer Delft engineers the possibility to contribute in the realization of long-term welfare. These countries provide a perfect occasion to validate and enrich earlier obtained knowledge. Students4Sustainability allows students to be involved in current projects with a small effort in order to enable the transition from TU Delft research into a concrete application in a place where it’s needed most urgently, thus accommodating a win-win perspective.
With this challenge and by showing the effects of it, S4S wants to make students passionate for sustainable technologies. They can be ambassadors of the projects of their fellow-students by donating €2 per month. Currently S4S has 600 members, helping other people to develop their good initiatives.
Last Tuesday we returned to Mumias after a holiday that brought us a lot of joy. Now it’s time for us to do our level best these final three weeks and to make sure our project becomes a real success.
¡Hola a todos!
A lot happened the past weeks which influenced the project a lot. We would like to inform you about these events, and the current state of the project.
Our time will be over in two weeks time. We have for the location of the company. One of the components of the plan is the construction of a wooden constructed a plan greenhouse. This greenhouse will serve as an example greenhouse for farmers. They can learn to grow plants in the
greenhouse and become convinced of the benefits. The construction of the greenhouse will start when the ground of the location has been levelled for what they are doing now, because there are still a lot of stumps in the ground. All materials are inside so after the equalization, the construction
can start immediately.
