Committees of Aktief Slip
Aktief Slip has many committees organizing a bunch of activities so to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible! If you are interested in joining a committee, send an email to [email protected]
The Akcie is the activity committee. We organize anything we feel like organizing. Treasure hunts, game nights, theme parties or a hitchhike weekend. Nothing is too complicated or too simple for the Akcie. 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!
There are two annual relay races which we normally participate in. The Veluweloop and the Batavierenrace. These are great events where teams from different universities and associations join for a big competition and party. But some logistics are necessary, and the Batacie takes care of these.
Click takes pictures of all our events and posts some on Instagram. As a click member, you will mostly just attend activities and take pictures of attendees. You have access to the Aktief Slip camera and you don’t need previous photography experience! You can learn on the job.
The EKO is a yearly renewed committee that organizes 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.
This committee organizes activities that are organized in partnership with external parties. Workshops, excursions, etc.
This committee makes food. Potlucks, cooking competitions, bbq, you name it, let your imagination go loose and make food for our stomachs. This committee is new this year, so anything is possible!
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.
Luco & Alco
Every 5 years, Aktief Slip celebrates a lustrum year, a birthday for the association. And this year, Akteif Slip is celebrating it’s 55th birthday! Or 11th Lustrum! The Luco committee is responsible for the lustrum year celebrations. The theme this year is oasis, so desert and oasis themed activities, events, and merch is organized the whole year, but with a focus on period 5.
And every lustrum year comes with an almanac book, which celebrates the last five years of the association. The Alco is the committee responsible of writing and designing this book.
This is a committee for and by master students of MES MUE and MCL. You can organize whatever activity, be it drinks, potlucks or more education-related. Anything to get to know each other and have a great time!
This is our merch committee. Do you want to design a new Aktief Slip sweater? Or tote bag? Or maybe you think we should have Aktief Slip slippers? Join the Merchie! They design, order, promote and deal with the inventory of the Aktief Slip merch.
You like to drink, everyone (almost) like to drink, and students like to drink even more. You can cater to this very important student need in this committee! Borels, dances, beer tasting, flunky ball, pub quizzes, post corona has never been this exciting.
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!
The Holidaycie is a very fun committee. It is composed exclusively of first year students and organizes a few activities for all our members: the first one being Sinterklaas. It is the first experience in a committee of any kind for first years’ students and therefore a great learning experience. Being part of this committee is usually a lot of fun and a stepping plate for further activity within the committees of Aktief Slip.
Sportcie organizes a large variety of sportive activities that are approachable for everyone. Theirgoal is to get the environmental students in contact with sports and at the same time in contact with each other. During their activities students of different years get to know each other and work together as a team. Activities that they have organized are for example squash, archery, mountain biking, frisbee, and lasergaming. Besides that they participate in internal competitions for soccer and knotsbal. Usually they play a match every week, but you can join whenever you want
Every year, the association organizes a weekend trip abroad in period 6. The Weekendcie takes care of the logistics, activities, and makes sure everyone has a trip they’ll remember forever.
On the 25th of May 2022 we had the Aktief Slip Gala, complete with dinner, fancy dress and dancing. The Galacie was the creative mind behind the organization of this grand event. The gala is organized every other year, alternating with Family Day.
