RASL (Graphic Design and IBACS) student Lotte Gerick and Dora Varga (Graphic Design) student with the Circular Student Award 2018 with their Zero-Waste Meal concept.

The Municipality of Rotterdam, Stadswonen and Erasmus Sustainability Hub recently initiated a contest, inviting students to come up with the city’s most circular solution. The contest was won by RASL student Lotte Gerick, who is doing Graphic Design and International Bachelor of Arts and Culture Studies, and Dora Varga, a Graphic Design student from the Willem de Kooning Academy.

Their concept, the Zero-Waste Meal principle, Dora and Lotte had decided they wanted to promote awareness right from the start. They created a challenge in which the goal is to make one Zero-Waste meal with your friends and share this on social media using the hashtag #zerowastemeal. By using a team of representatives, Dora and Lotte plan to create an action-reaction effect to enables them to reach as many students as possible.
