The Akcie is the activity committee. We organize anything we feel like organizing. Fun lunches, theme parties, a diner rouler or a hitchhike weekend. Nothing is too complicated or too simple for the Akcie. There are some events that we host each year like the first years’ dinner and the ‘pancakes at the Rhine’ to kick off the academic year. We strive to make all our events accessible and fun for all Aktief Slip members. If you have a nice idea for an activity do not hesitate to let us know!
The EKO is a yearly renewed committee that organises a weekend for first years’ Bachelor students only called the ‘EKO weekend’ which takes place at the beginning of the study year. The EKO weekend is organized somewhere in the Netherlands and is full of fun, beer and interaction with fellow students. Besides the weekend, the EKO also organizes the BSc study day during the annual introduction days. Furthermore, EKO members also have the role of guiding a tutor group of first years’ bachelor students to answer questions and give information about for example events happening.
We, the GreenInk committee, release Aktief Slip’s magazine four times per year. We try to provide a magazine that contains both casual and serious articles. We write about content that we consider interesting to every environmental student: sustainability and, of course, Aktief Slip! In our committee, we challenge ourselves: by proofreading, thinking about content for our next magazine and evaluating our latest editions, we try to improve our writing and editorial skills. Besides the aforementioned sustainability and Aktief Slip-pages, we also like to include some casual content, such as our returning game page and recipe page.

The Sintcie is a very fun committee. It is composed exclusively of first year students and organizes the Sinterklaas activity for all our members. It is the first experience in a committee of any kind for first years’ students and therefore a great learning experience. The Sinterklaas party is always a great success and being part of this committee is usually a lot of fun and a stepping plate for further activity within the committees of Aktief Slip.
We organize a large variety of sportive activities that are approachable for everyone. Our goal is to get the environmental students in contact with sports and at the same time in contact with each other. It is nice to see that during our activities students of different years get to know each other and work together as a team. Activities that we have organized are for example squashing, archery, mountain biking, frisbee and lasergaming. Besides that we participate in internal competitions for soccer and knotsbal. Usually we play a match every week, but you can join whenever you want
The Suscie organises sustainable activities, often in collaboration with other committees. Besides that, the Suscie ensures that Aktief Slip will be even more sustainable, and has external contact with other (nation wide) sustainable organisations. Furthermore, the Suscie writes a page in the GreenInk where it provides sustainable ideas and tips!
The promocie is a committee that presents our study to possible new students. We organize three group takealong days in a year. New students get familiar with the structure and all the three different tracks you could choose in our study. We also organize the two open days at the wur where we inform the scholars about our study on the information market. We cannot be missed in our recognizable purple t-shirts. Take a look at the wur-website if you are interested in the open day or the takealong day!
