The S4S board consists of TU Delft students who manage the organisation on a part-time basis. Every year students are motivated to commit themselves to the mission of this foundation. The S4S board of 2022/2023 consists of the following persons:
Tadé Whenu - chair
Hey! My name is Tadé and this year I will be the president of the 16th S4S Board. During my recent study years I have been actively searching for a way to contribute to sustainable innovation in terms of the environment, economy but also social sustainability. Together with TU Delft I have been working on a sustainable project in Lombok, Indonesia, with the goal of restoring and protecting coral reefs. Through this project I got familiar with S4S. They helped me with funding, impact assessment and other consultancy for my project. The vision and mission of S4S immediately grabbed my attention: To stimulate students at the TU delft to use knowledge, technology and innovative techniques for a sustainable planet. I think this is a valuable way for me to contribute to a more sustainable future, because I believe the students at the TU Delft can play a big role in the required innovations, especially when this is done with a sustainable, responsible mindset. This year I hope to shift this mindset of the students towards a sustainable and inclusive standard, in an inspiring manner, whilst remaining critical of our actions.

Boris Kastelein - secretary
Hi! My name is Boris and I am the secretary of S4S 16. Alongside this I am going to finish my bachelor's degree in Industrial Design & Engineering. As a designer I want to contribute to a future in which sustainability is better integrated into our society. During my internship at an offshore company I developed an aquatic plastic removal system, aimed to be cheaper and more user friendly. Last year I helped organise the first edition of Festable, the festival of S4S that introduces students to sustainability in a fun way. With this event I learned a lot about the ways you can engage students with sustainability. This year I want to apply these skills to more events and improve them. With S4S I expect to learn a lot and to find new inspiration in sustainability!

Kaatje Bout - treasurer
Hi! My name is Kaatje and this year I am the treasurer of the S4S board. The past years I have studied Life Science & Technology, a course focused on the smallest forms of life as well as on large production processes. I think that this concept of ‘zooming in and out’ is also applicable to sustainability. You can be occupied with a greener world on both a large and a small scale. Especially as a student. This is something that S4S wants to promote: you can make an impact, whether it is in your daily life or through a bigger project. By sharing this mindset, we can move forward together. I think that there are already many sustainable solutions within reach, but it is still a challenge to connect different stakeholders. With S4S I hope that we can inspire people of various ages, backgrounds and disciplines to collaborate on a sustainable future!

Anne van den Homberg - commissioner of projects
Hi, I'm Anne, BSc student Mechanical Engineering and I'm in charge of the projects at S4S this year. Sometimes being involved in sustainability can be overwhelming, so I'm very happy to be able to contribute on a small scale. I look forward to helping students with projects that provide continuity and involve the local community. Besides focusing on this, I also want to keep working on the change we can make here in Delft. I am convinced that change will only come through a change in mindset towards the unsustainable systems we currently live in. So: mindset is key, which is why my goal for this year - both personally and for my position within S4S - is to be reflective, entrepreneurial and inspiring!

Charlotte Mussert - commissioner of external affairs
Hi! I am Charlotte, 22 years old, and this year I am responsible for the external relations of S4S. Next to this position, I started this year my master's in Management in the Built Environment. I am extremely motivated to work actively at S4S this year because I believe our generation is facing one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced. I think that we, as technical students, are able to come up with solutions that can greatly reduce our impact on the climate. My goal this year is to inspire and motivate students to think about their impact and their future role in business. That is why I would like to make sustainability in business visible to students, to ensure that these students can make a positive impact in business in a few years.
If you have any questions about S4S or if you're interested in a partnership with S4S you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call +31 6 46 26 24 10.
Tom Flendrig - commissioner of activities
Hi, I'm Tom and will be in charge of all activities this year. With these events, we will inspire and activate a large group of people around the topic of sustainability. Sustainability is a big topic and there is a lot to think about but there will always be a time to make your thoughts a reality. By taking engineering students on a journey to a circular planet, I show them that now is the time to take action! My dream is that many future generations can live happily and responsibly because of our efforts. I myself am gaining knowledge while studying Industrial Design and Engineering and use it to create solutions for a sustainable future.
