Ties with fossil fuel industry

At universities and academic institutions across the Netherlands, students and staff are discussing their institutions’ ties with fossil fuel industries. We believe such conversations are crucial to have with all of our academic and scientific communities.

As Scientists for Future NL,

  1. we urge all Dutch higher education institutions to be transparent about (fossil) industry ties;
  2. we encourage each institution to have an open, democratic dialogue with its community, and publicly share the proceedings and subsequent actions;
  3. we here share a number of perspectives and empirical data as starting point for the discussion
