The dream of Frisian youth will become reality from 1 to 14 July 2018: in Fryslân all people will travel with sustainable means of transport. Electric cars and taxis, shared cars, green gas buses, segways, recumbents, electric boats and other special vehicles will determine the traffic picture from the provincial borders. The Elfwegentocht: two weeks party without a drop of petrol!
NHL Stenden naturally participates in this beautiful initiative. The whole education is participating! On the Day of Sustainability all MBO and HBO institutions have signed up to take part in the Elfwegentocht. That’s why we want to ask you to come to our school for this Congress of fossils too!
