‘living room’ at the FEB, E-Building REC


Nine months ago, we held our first meeting in the liberated Maagdenhuis and formed ReThink UvA. We called for democratization of our university, for financial transparency and an abandonment of ‘rendementsdenken’: a word that has by now become commonly used.

Now it’s time to come together and take stock of our achievements and sketch the road that’s still ahead of us.

We have a lot to be proud of: the establishment of the democratization and finance committees and CvB’s commitment to an agenda for reform (the 10-point plan) that addresses some of our concerns. But despite these steps forward, we still face many challenges.

So, let’s discuss our goals and devise a strategy to achieve them.

Join us on 16 December and bring your colleagues too. This is a great opportunity for everyone who would like to learn more about what is going on at our university, to become involved.

Below, you’ll find the proposed agenda.

We hope to see you on the 16th,
