VVM for students

De VVM is thé network of environmental professionals in the Netherlands. Up-and-coming sustainable talents and old hands in the environmental trade meet each other in our association. Our 1250+ members easily  get in touch in one of the 20 sections with themes such as biodiversity, water and climate & energy. Especially for students and starters there is section Young. And, within the network you can look for a mentor; handy when you're looking for an internship or your future job. 

In our network Dutch is the principal language, which certainly does not imply that as a non-Dutch speaker you cannot profit from a membership.

What VVM has to offer non-Dutch speaking students:

  • an inspiring sustainable network of over 1200 members active in the field of environment and/ or sustainability ranging from trainees at municipalities to senior policy advisors, university professors, technical  specialists and independent consultants .
  • extensive searchable database to get in touch with environmental experts in your field of interest
  • mentorsystem: find an experienced VVM-member to discuss your study, internship or career options.
  • free access to our online scientific journal: Journal of integrative environmental sciences
  • free admittance to all our activities, except courses and certain dinners: all activities that are held in English are also announced in English. Every three to five years we host the NCGG International Symposium on Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases
  • our yearly Rachel Carson Award for best thesis in the field of sustainability/ environmental issues is open to theses in both Dutch and English.
  • favourable membership fee: 40 or 20 euros a year instead of 125 euro for a regular membership. And for a two year period after graduation  you can remain a member for only  65 euros a year (and still have free access to activities).

Student member at a discount

A student membership costs 40 euros a year. Even just 20 euro a year if you are a member of a study association with which we cooperate.

At present we have agreements with Aktief Slip (WUR), FMC (Inholland Delft), Genius Loci (WUR), Hallieu (HvHL), IESA Shift (LU/TU Delft), Morgen, Mundus (RU), Nitocra (WUR), Spectrum (UvA), Storm (UU), SFSA (A'dam), Sylvatica (WUR) and UBV (UU). Are you a member of SustainaGear (HAS)? Then you can even become a member for free.

Moreover,  if you sign in with the ‘actiecode’ we agreed upon with the board of your study association, not only do you profit from a discount, but your association also gets 20 euros from us (with the exception of  SustainaGear: through them all Environmental Science students from the HAS can become members for free).

Become a member

Sign up with our network via www.vvm.info/aanmelden and ask for the actiecode at your study association. Don’t we mention your association? We’d like to get in touch with the board! Mail us: uaerub.[antispam].@vvm.info.
