The VESTING Board 2018-2019 started an initiative within VESTING to stimulate public and social awareness amongst our members. With this movement, we want to show that it is possible to operate in a field of Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial Studies while at the same time contributing to a better world. During the past year, we have tried to accomplish these goals by providing a platform for socially conscious businesses and giving them the opportunity to come in contact with our members.

Furthermore we, as VESTING, try to create awareness on a more informal level using monthly green initiatives. The aim of these initiatives is to show students what they can do themselves to contribute to a greener world. Every month, these green initiatives show that the first step to changing the world is changing yourself.
