• What is S&I

    S&I believe students are the driven power to create a better University, here in Wageningen.


    S&I (Sustainability & internationalization) is a multicultural political party in the Wageningen Student Council at Wageningen University. We represent the interests of all students and actively participate in the decisions and policy-making at WUR through the Student Council. S&I strives for sustainability in contributing to a more sustainable university in the area of operation, community, and education.S&I values a better integrated WUR community, student well-being and high-quality education.

    As a branch between the university and students, we build effective interaction between the students and the university.


    S&I is a big tree that supports students in many different ways. We encourage students to be observative, reflective, to speak out and make real changes in practice. We appreciate every student's opinion because we believe students are leaves which can make the S&I tree grow brighter and stronger.


    We are S&I, we ‘rooted in student life’.

    Malik Dasoo

    Master of International Land and Water Management

    As someone who has been campaigning for the past two years for Wageningen university, municipality and Dutch national government to take much more urgent action on the climate and ecological emergency, I am well-aware of how difficult it is to be a politically active student in Wageningen.

    The participation structures of the university are not good enough and there is no support given to active students outside of green groups.


    I want to challenge our university to be better in the elements of sustainability and participation.

    We live in unprecedented times and our university must reimagine what its responsibility is in light of the climate and ecological emergencies. As one of the world's leading life-science institutions, it must be held to higher standards and I believe more students being involved in decision-making processes is one way in which to do that. The university must acquire a rigorous climate policy. This currently does not exist at WUR.


    I stand firmly against the neo-liberalization of our university: we have a right to say in which direction our university collaborates with the private sector. For those asking why a Unilever building was able to open on campus without your knowing or permission, I want to launch an investigation into the student council and executive board to show the limitations of participation as it currently exists. I want to get more students involved in the corporate social responsibility department and exercise the student council's right to consent/approval on these matters.


    Very few students know what the student council is, what they do and how they can participate. I hope, in my limited time, to exercise the university's responsibility to set up a formal complaint procedure that will address issues related to the behavior of individuals at the university or any other organized body at the university. Students should be able to express their disapproval of decisions through a formalized system of participation. This currently does not exist at WUR.
