Welcome to Faculty Association Ibn Battuta!

With the Career Day FSSGeo Promotion and also the National Geography and Planning Symposium in Groningen this year, we have three big career events in our beloved city to look forward to in 2019. These events (click here for more information) all have a different set-up, goals, and organizers. They do, however, have one thing in common: they help FSS-students to develop themselves and prepare for their future.

Ibn Battuta’s Passe-Partout will give you access to this Big 3 with a one-time purchase and a €10 discount. This means that you can attend all three events for no more than €22.50! If you want to save money on the best preparation for your career, click here to buy your Passe-Partout! Be quick, as the supply is very limited.

For this year's W.J. van den Bremen Lecture, we are honored to have no one less than Henk Ovink. Ovink is the Dutch Special Envoy for International Water Affairs to the United Nations and has traveled all over the world to teach how to live with water. He was in Obama's 'Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Taskforce', which inspired the US to live with water, the Dutch way. Ovink will talk about living with water in the current changing environment, as is done all over the world. He will also be appointed Honorary Lecturer of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, for all of his great deeds.

Date:         December 19th
Time:         11:00 AM until  01:00 PM (walk-in starts 10:30 AM)
Location:   Groninger Forum (Hereplein 73)

On December 7th, the Career Services team will provide a workshop on these topics from 03:00 PM until 05:00 PM in their room in Duisenberg.
