Climate Strike November 29th 2019

On November 29th 2019, a national ‘climate strike’ will be organized, as a follow-up to the climate strike of September 27th 2019.

TU Delft attaches great importance to climate action. In this regard, a vision paper was recently published on how we aim to harness our innovative powers to support the world-wide transition to non-fossil energy, and thus support the adaptation of the living environment to the consequences of global warming. In addition, we have signed the joint climate declaration of universities.

We realize this also raises expectations about our attitude towards ‘climate strikes’ as an employer and educational institution. In view of our institutional position on climate action, the approach of the Executive Board with regard to this “climate strike” is as follows:

  • As a technical-scientific institution, TU Delft endorses the general purpose of the demonstration;
  • We allow staff and students who request this to be present at this demonstration on November 29th;
  • Students and members of staff with teaching (or other) obligations are asked to discuss matters with their course supervisor / line manager in case they want to participate in the strike to assess how participation in the strike might impact on these obligations.
