Evening with Jan Terlouw

As a fantastisc conclusion to the HAN Student as Partner (SaP) festival, Jan Terlouw will visit the HAN. Jan Terlouw is an author of children’s books, a former politician and, after his performance at DWDD, he is best known for the book ‘Het touwtje uit de brievenbus’; an ode to social sustainability.

During his visit, Jan Terlouw answers the questions asked by Sam Mouzarmi, student of the college of education history. Get inspired by this interactive interview and join the conversation!

This evening is organized by six study associations and Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018. It is a special evening for students, teachers and partners of the HAN. Are you excited? Sign up for free here. See the flyer for the evening program.

Nijmegen has been elected European Green Capital 2018! We are the first Dutch city to hold this title, with Copenhagen, Bristol, Ljubljana, Essen and several others before us. We have earned the award by spending many years working hard on greening and sustainability. And by ‘we’ we mean the entire city and surroundings; both young and old, with major and minor activities.

WE’D LOVE TO MEET YOU IN OUR VISITOR’S PAVILION

The Visitors Pavilion on Kelfkensbos Square is the calling card of Green Capital and Nijmegen in 2018. We are quite proud of it, too! The pavilion is our ‘home’ for all of 2018. Here you’ll find everything you want to know about Green Capital. Feel free to ask us anything, get leaflets of our Green Routes or info about our events and Green Challenges. It’s open for visitors every day between 12 and 5 PM. A number of activities take place in the Pavilion. You will find these in our calendar.

Architect and interior
The pavilion was designed by the famous Flemish architect Chris Poulissen. Does his name sound familiar to you? That could be right! He previously worked on innovative constructions such as the Oversteek and the Lentloper. The interior is by Jordan Artisan. He provided a beautiful, sustainable and recognizable design that everyone feels at home with.

Demountable
The pavilion is an arc-shaped building made of tree trunks. The pavilion is easy to disassemble. And that’s going to happen after 2018; the pavilion will then be rebuilt and reused somewhere else.
