|2021-04-28||Bee Hotel Workshop||Make a wild bee hotel!🐝
Now, you may be thinking: "Why would I want to build a hotel for wild bees in my garden? They will come into my home and sting me!" However, this couldn't be farther from the truth.
What are wild bees? Wild bees are solitary bees that live without a queen or group. They do not sting, do not enter houses and they mostly stay in the garden. As long as you don't hurt the bee, the bee won't hurt you.
Why is this important? Solitary bees are important for the pollination of our plants and our food stock. In the last decades, the bee population has declined significantly, but people mostly only helped the honey bees. However, honey bees are not as good in pollination as solitary bees. A bee hotel will also help the bio-diversity in our environment!
How to make a bee hotel? Join the bee hotel workshop next Wednesday (the 28th of April) to learn how! The location of the workshop is at the APV in Vlissingen (Joost de Moorstraat 21).
Why make a bee hotel yourself when you can just buy one from Action, for example? Not all these bee or insect hotels are the right quality and can still have splinters inside them, which can harm the bees.
Do you want more information? You can read this flyer or join the bee workshop Wednesday the 28th.So Join us in building a Bee Hotel at the Student Garden together with Ms. Monique Jankowski, a local beekeeper who has a lot of knowledge and experience!

|2020-01-16||Documentary Day||Are you interested in climate change?
Do you think it is already happening around the world? How do you think this affects us, and what the impact might be in the near future?
The HZ Green Office with the support of HZ Cult and Apv Housing has organized a documentary day. This event will be in the APV Campus, Thursday, January the 16th at 19:00. It will consist of the projection of two documentaries:
19:00 Chasing Glaciers (Directed by Mark Gregory)
A world temperature increase of 1.5 °C is already inevitable and a 2 °C increase is very possible considering the path we are on now. As the climate changes, droughts will become more commonplace as major cities like Capetown and Los Angeles are predicted to lose all access to their natural water reserves. Nations such as the Maldives and Bangladesh will completely disappear underneath the ocean’s surface and desertification will destroy much of Northern Africa and the Middle East (and all of this by 2050)! Even though these problems seem existential and preventable, there is one place where the threat of Climate Change is currently manifesting itself: the beautiful country of Perú. Within their borders are 70% of the world´s tropical glaciers and over the last 40 years, they have lost almost half their surface areas. The country of 27 million all depends on these glaciers either directly or indirectly for potable water, irrigation, and hydroelectric energy. With the rise in temperature many if not all these glaciers will completely disappear. As they do, the livelihoods and water resources of the people impacted will vanish as well. There is no saving them, only to adapt to a new way of life or pack up and move.
19:20 Q&A session
19:35 Building bridges (Directed by Carlijn Mulder and Nadine Smiths)
Carlijn Mulder and Nadine Smits participated in the 2017 HZ Honours Programme. They created the documentary "Building Bridges" during their journey, as the honours programme gives space and the opportunity to HZ students to work on their own interesting project. Carlijn and Nadine travelled through five different countries -Thailand, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and Vietnam- and researched how these countries deal with Climate Change related problems. Nadine is now an advisor Water and Climate for the Province of Zeeland. She will introduce the documentary and relate her learnings to her work as a professional. After the documentary there will be a Q&A.

You'll be joining a group of 20 to 25 roetveegpieten, together with Ingrid de Vries (coordinator HZ Green Office) and friends, giving “pepernoten” to the kids in Middelburg. Really fun to do!
We’ll arrive on boats and come to the shore in the harbour of Middelburg facing thousands of children. We’ll be provided with special clothes to dress up and we'll get some black sweeps that the Pieten have from sliding through the chimney.
Middelburg has wisely decided to also have 50% roetveegpieten this year in addition to 50% zwarte pieten. Next year, Sinterklaas will be helped by 100% roetveegpieten. Join us and be part of the change!For this activity you can gain credits via HZ Personality.

Cleanup materials will be provided.
We will meet at 15:00 in front of the Panta Rhei at Vlissingen close to the Nollestrand. On this occasion, we will continue the clean-up efforts while further collecting data about the plastic litter found.
Christoph will be there again needing your help and guiding you through the process. This time we would like to test the accessibility of a specific app so if you want to help and prepare in advance you could download the “litterati” app before Friday. However, there will be an opportunity to download this on location. This approach is oriented on the same methodology as we tested last time but with a different input approach.
We are looking forward to getting involved with you again!

About the HZ Green Office For the past 2 years, the HZ Green Office has organised different events and projects around sustainability in and around the university. The HZ Green Office is run by a core team of students and a coordinator. The HZ GO! focuses on greening the campus and (near) environment by organizing and participating in sustainability projects and activities, preferably in cooperation with other stakeholders. As such, we build and maintain a diverse partnership network of local businesses, government and sponsors. Where possible, synergetic connections are initiated between external partners and HZ research & education. Ideally, the HZ-campus is a living lab and playground where students can design and pilot their own solutions in multidisciplinary teams. Our goal is to build and strengthen our (international) community, connecting with each other around action-based sustainability initiatives that generate a positive impact and inspire others. Finally, the time has come for the opening of our physical office! So join us on Thursday 10 October during the Dutch national day for sustainability. The office is located at the end of the PE2-Hallway. The opening will take place at 12:00. After the official opening, the HZ Green Office will present itself followed by Green drinks and a Q&A session until 13:00. Bring your own mug if you can!We hope to see you all there.

The meetup spot will be in front of the Panta Rhei at 14:15. We will combine our efforts to get the beach a little cleaner followed by some drinks and snacks afterwards. Drinks and snacks will be provided by us. However, please bring your own cup or a reusable bottle if you can.
We will also start combining the cleanups with monitoring the things we collect. Delta management student Christoph Sonneck will guide us this Friday in monitoring plastic waste. The goal is to measure what we find, how much, and where.
There are a lot of small plastic pellets on the beach at the moment, so bring a kitchen sieve/strainer if you have one.
