We are a non-profit organisation from Leuven that develops projects in a sustainable manner. Our mission is to change the norms regarding sustainability and we try to lead by example.
Our projects are financed by sponsoring and subsidies. All profit, if any, goes straight to other organizations who try to make a better place out of this world.
All our projects are in some way linked to the sustainability topic. Be it books, food or garbage. We put great investment at raising awareness to the ecological problems we face, in a creative but professional way.
At our bakvoetbal event, we offer vegan catering at fair prices. In this way we try to stimulate non-vegans to try out ecological food alternatives, hoping they will start eating those on a regular basis. The same counts for Vegan Sandwich, one of our projects where we try to normalize ecological food consumption. Besides food, we also work on limiting our trash production. By stimulating secondhand student books and avoiding packaging when serving food.
Belgium has many sustainability related projects to offer. Unfortunately, those events tend to be unpragmatic or polarizing.
We try to organize new and creative projects which are for all citizens,
and not only those bothered about climate. By approaching the problems in a playful way, it becomes easier to include those who initially were less involved.
Apart from sustainability, our main objectives are joy and being together with friends. Having a good vibe compensates for the problems we try to address. The right atmosphere is maintained by having a smooth organization.
Eventus is a non-profit organization. Everything is financed by self-generated revenue, sponsorships and subsidies. The small margin we make on our catering compensates for general expenses, so we normally end up breaking even on our events. The external fundings are used to cover the expenses of developing new projects. All remaining budget goes straight to social -or ecological organizations. An example of those is DLA, one of our own charity projects.
A football tournament for Leuven students. There are beer bins on field, which should be avoided, in case you hit any, you have to drink a beer before you can continue to play. Proved to be a successful concept, good summer vibes, friends and football.
Together with local citizens and sandwich bars we try to tackle the problem of the limited selection of vegan sandwiches offered. We challenge 20 teams to create a tasteful, healthy and vegan sandwich. Volunteers will rate them and this will hopefully result in adding the best vegan sandwiches to the menu of sandwich bars.

Out of the 150 000 studying books sold to KU Leuven students annually, only 10-15% is sold secondhand. This amount could be increased to 70% if appropriate systems were to be implemented. We challenge student associations and students to step up their game, by means of an intercampus competition.
