Sustainable Fashion Workshop

April 21st, 2021 19.00PM - 20.00 PM

Ready to get into action for sustainable fashion?

After an enriching lecture on sustainable fashion, during this one-hour online workshop, Dr Fabiola Polli will focus on the more practical side of sustainable fashion! She will tell you about the characteristics of different types of textiles and help you pick up some of the practical skills you need to fix your clothes yourself instead of throwing them away.

Dr Polli completed a PhD in synthetic biology at the RUG and has a background in biochemistry and molecular
biology. She is also the founder of Chicfashic, an online platform raising people’s awareness about the role of the global fashion industry and the importance of second-hand fashion in combating climate change.

Join Dr Polli to ask her your questions about sustainable fashion and discover your crafty side! This online workshop is a follow-up to the sustainable fashion lecture, but you don’t need to have followed that one to participate in this one-of-a-kind practical workshop.

There are only 15 spots available, so sign up now below to join (registration is free and open for all!)

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at careerlecture@hcsf.nl or board@hcsf.nl!

Online Meditation Programme

Every Monday at 20.30 PM starting March 15th, 2021

Starting on March 15, 2021, the honorable Sri Lankan Buddhistic monk Bahnte Pasadhika Tero will be giving an online meditation program for anyone who’d like to join. You can read more about Bahnte here: https://antonabroad.com/becoming-a-buddhist-monk-a-life-decision-that-i-did-not-regret/

The program is for free and held online once per week. Each session is 60 minutes, in which the students will meditate together, learn about Buddhistic philosophy and have the possibility to ask Bahnte Pasadhika questions. During the program, students will learn different meditation techniques, including Anapana meditation, Vipassana meditation and Metta meditation. The programme will last for 2 months.

When meditating, we try to observe things as they are, without reacting to them or trying to change them. We just observe. Often, emotions or unobserved thoughts distort how we see the world around us. The awareness gained through meditation can be taken into our everyday lives, making us more concentrated and focused on the present moment.

To participate, please sign up by sending an e-mail with your name and contact details to dhamsuwa@gmail.com. You don’t need to be a member of the Honours College to participate in this course, it is open to everyone. You also don’t need to be a spiritual or religious person to benefit from meditation. The meditation techniques taught in this course can be learned easily and are non-sectarian.
