Van Gogh Europe Seminar highlights the integration of art and sustainability in Master's students' internship projects

On May 25, 2023, three students from the KU Leuven FEB programme 'Environmental Health and Safety' (Master Milieu en Preventie Management) were in the spotlight at the Van Gogh Europe (VGE) seminar in Paris. These young talents were given the unique opportunity to showcase the results of their one-year internship.

The projects were the outcome of a close collaboration with students from ISC Paris Business School. Despite the diverse nature of the projects a common thread connects them, i.e. the integration of art, sustainability, and well-being and implementing the ideas at one of the heritage sites or museums within the VGE network. The successful integration of these three themes is a tribute to the power of interdisciplinary collaboration. By leveraging the strengths of different fields, the teams were able to achieve impressive results. In this article, we will delve into the process behind the creation of this internship and examine how the seemingly unrelated concepts of art and sustainability were expertly woven together.
