As we start again we would like to ask you to give us feedback on things we did last year together … [Read more…]
Yesterday the board met. Besides the interesting discussion whether or not our logo is circular (can you find out? be sure to reply!), we talked about the website, a brand new polling and persistance system for the TND, as well as some final preparations for our upcoming events “Kritiek op Alles” (14th of nov.) and … [Read more…]
Select and submit topics of your interest for the regular Think’N’Drink discussion nights. This persistent system keeps an account of which topics are interesting to most, so they can be selected ahead of time for our Think’N’Drinks. Once collectively selected, a date will be set for the top subject, and it will be taken off … [Read more…]
Stichting Aardehuis is performing a feat unique on Dutch soil, namely the construction of multiple blocks of sustainable earthship houses. Most of the actual labor being done to create this self-sufficient ecovillage is done by the future occupants and by volunteers, rather than a traditional construction crew! The finished houses will feature their own water … [Read more…]
Dear everyone, With a mix of joy and urgency, I would like to invite you all to our next General Assembly on February 12th at 18:00. As far as assemblies and the importance of you showing up go – the stakes could not be higher. Up for discussion is the very core of VOX’ identity: … [Read more…]
During this summer some of the VOX members visited the Aardehuis, or Earthship construction site in Olst. Now we are organizing a field trip to the construction site for students who want to see it for themselves. Stichting Aardehuis is performing a feat unique on Dutch soil, the construction of multiple blocks of sustainable earthship … [Read more…]
VOX Delft is a student association that devotes itself to the self-development of its members. Never heard of us before? That’s probably because we are still new and small! But we are also well-funded, highly motivated, and highly active in the upcoming year. We are regularly engaged in critical thinking on society, technology, media, belief systems, … [Read more…]
VOX and Stylos, the student association of the Faculty of Architecture in Delft, are planning to organize a field trip to the construction site of a community of Earth Ships in Overijssel. This field trip will take place somewhere in the spring or summer of 2012. We will most likely be put to work on … [Read more…]
Hold on, no VOX Weekly today? Instead of hosting a Weekly in the TU Delft Aula as has become a custom on thursdays, today we will be making an appearance on Campus Radio 1 Delft! We will be offered six minutes of airtime, during most of which we will be asked to comment on the … [Read more…]
For those who missed the debate on Thursday, here’s a decent reflection of the discussion itself. Published the morning before the debate, and written by Martine Zeijlstra, it was pretty spot-on in pre-sensing the tone of the debate. Which ended up being more of a discussion of YES, OPENNESS IS WHAT WE WANT than an … [Read more…]
VOX Delft needs your help to define the added value of being a member of our association! Since we thought a piece of text would be a little boring, we made you guys a video instead. Watch it to get an idea of what kind of help we’re asking for. Thanks!
Finally, we have analysed the survey hand out during our launch on the 6th of October 2011. It’s the same survey that’s available on our website (at http://voxdelft.com/survey/ ), asking students questions about their ambitions, social interests, and world issues. We decided it was time to share the results of our 13 participants.
We just got back from plugging VOX amidst the chaotic lunch-going crowd in the Aula. A crazy experience to see people reacting to our VOX-sweaters, flyers, surveys, video interviews, and banner. It was an information overload, and I’m quite sure the pitch we gave to each person was rather different every time. For those … [Read more…]
In light of our upcoming launch, I’d like to briefly touch base with all you, retrace some steps and explore why VOX Delft came to be – and, more importantly, why it has manifested the way it did. Consider this a raison d’être; a statement of intent. If there are any doubts left in your … [Read more…]
Completed the first photo-shoot today of the VOX board members. The pictures were taken by a photographer for the DELTA, the weekly newspaper of TU Delft, which will be using them to spice up their article on VOX Delft this week. The photographer gave VOX Secretary Samer a great opportunity to debate alternative income strategies. … [Read more…]
