Homeless students should soon be able to pitch their tents at a campsite in Wageningen. The plan by student entrepreneurs association SIFE got the green light from Wageningen city council this week.
The last hurdle for the project is to find a backer. 'We cannot shoulder all the financial risks alone', says SIFE spokesman (and Resource blogger) Tom Rijntjes. The organizers are therefore talking to various parties, but Rijntjes does not want to name names at this point. Logical partners would be Wageningen UR, the town council or housing provider Idealis.
The town campsite is likely to feature today (Thursday 20 October) on the NOS News on Channel 3.
