Our people

Students are often the victims of policy and usually have little influence. Lots of local political divisions say that it's difficult to get a feeling for what students in Rotterdam need and want. We've seen these past years that when students do raise their voices, it can have big consequences. Like the #nietmijnschuld campaigns, when suddenly lots of things were possible. Students are often overlooked when it comes to making new policy, and this should change, also in Rotterdam!

We're going to change this by connecting students and policy makers. We can make students' voices heard at the political parties and educational institutes in Rotterdam. Sometimes that just won't be enough. That's why we are also prepared to get out and demonstrate!

What's your name and what do you study?
I am Nathaniel and i study Nanobiology.

 

Why did you join STUUR?
Ik ben al een tijdje actief bij de #nietmijnschuld campagne in Rotterdam. Het opzetten van de campagne bleek lastig te zijn in Rotterdam mede omdat er dus geen studentenvakbond was. Toen ik hoorde dat er studenten waren die van plan waren er eentje op te zetten moest ik daar dus uiteraard bij zijn.

 

What is something you hope STUUR will achieve?
I hope we can make sure that students are considered when making local policy, and that they are better informed about their rights.

 

What do you do at STUUR?
During the holiday i have been working on the house style of STUUR and starting the social media channels.
Now i'm mostly focussed on contacting student organizations. I also talk to the press.

I love to go out with friends, and i also started to learn to play the piano.

Why did you join STUUR?
I am absolutely convinced that everybody's voice should be heard. Policy makers have a big impact on our lives and most of the time don't really know about the issues were are facing. Sadly, getting in contact with politicians and other policy makers is usually really difficult. I joined STUUR to close the gap between politics and students.

 

What is something you hope STUUR will achieve?
Ik hope that for at least a few students, STUUR will close the gap between politicians and students.

What's your name and what do you study?
I am Jorien Veenis and i'm in my foruth year of the study Marketing of Social Business at Hogeschool Rotterdam.

Why did you join STUUR?
I think it's important that students have access to information about difficult topics like tenency law. Right now it's often very unclear where you can get help. When it comes to interests, there are now dozens of associations and thousands of students who all have their own opinion. At STUUR everything comes together. Its a place where we can easily connect between students and policy makers. The connecting role of STUUR really appeals to me.

What is something you hope STUUR will achieve?
I hope STUUR will become a place where students feel seen and heard. That everybody knows how STUUR can help them en that we can be the binding factor between policy makers and students.

I busy with writing the statutes and the formal establishment of the student union. I also keep an eye on our finances and help the communications team when necessary!
