Raising awareness

During the Green and Healthy Expedition, health and sustainability took center stage for three weeks, with activities aimed to raise awareness and stimulate action in our work environment. Workshops were organized to support the Green Teams at UMC Utrecht. During the workshops, participants for instance learned about planetary health and what they themselves could do for a healthier planet. 

Colleagues could also take part in a forest walk on the Oostbroek estate where the forest guard showed them the consequences of climate change and the resilience of nature. At the circularity market, colleagues could buy secondhand furniture from Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, of which the profits went to the association Friends of Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital . ‘Ralph (Return all left-over pharmaceuticals) the fish’ is a work of art that draws attention to the prevention of drug residues in water.
