The daily board of Studenten voor Morgen consists of a team of young, enthusiastic and sustainable students. The board changes every year on 1 July and is responsible for everything that happens within Studenten voor Morgen: projects, finances, support of member organizations, and so on. The board is also the face of Studenten voor Morgen and they try to put SvM on the map as well as possible. Studenten voor Morgen will be run in the board year 2022 – 2023 by a board of six enthusiastic students:

Luca Hegeman | PR and Communication
Hi! My name is Luca Hegeman, a 22-year-old student in Utrecht. In the next year I will be fulfilling the function of ‘public relations’ within the board of ‘Studenten voor morgen’ with great enthusiasm. I am really looking forward to making it a great year together with my fellow board members and working towards a more sustainable higher education. I believe that often the start of change lies with the younger generations and education. That’s why I’m really looking forward to focusing on mobilizing individuals and communities to address sustainability issues in higher education. In addition, I am doing a master’s degree in organizing social impact and I love being outside and doing sports. In the past six months I have been able to fulfill these desires with long hikes in the natural beauty of Norway, next year I will go back to ‘normal’ hockey and sailing.
