Ten students from the Ukraine will spend the first week of February with the Wageningen student union, WSO.
WSO has arranged a week of activities for the visitors, including workshops on how to use the press, and how to structure a union organisation. “The students are also interested to learn how student accommodation is organised, as well as how our discount office works,” adds Frans Buschman, who is member of the work group. Above all, Buschman hopes that they end the week with the feeling that students can influence university policies. He also expects to learn things from the visitors: “Maybe our solutions are not always the best either.” The Ukrainians will give a presentation on Monday 2 February, which is open to all, as is the rest of the programme. | Yvonne de Hilster
