You’re just 1 in 7 billion people in a very confusing time on Earth. Is it possible for you to make a difference? Is it worth trying? Rob Greenfield’s answer to these questions is a resounding yes, and on his visit to TU/e he will share why and how you can be the change you wish to see in the world.

Rob Greenfield’s method of creating change is to lead by example and live it out loud. His life serves as a wakeup call to people worldwide. He’s the creator of unique projects – from wearing his trash for 30 days, to living off the grid in a tiny house, to his most recent year of growing and foraging 100% of his food – all designed to wake people up and instigate change.

Although Rob takes his life to the extreme, his message is one of moderation. Through his work he aims to create a counterbalance to the consumeristic society we live in today. Rob’s projects can inspire you to get a deeper understanding of the life that you are living and offer you solutions you can adapt to help make a change.

Rob Greenfield is an environmental activist and humanitarian dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable and just world. Once just a drunk dude, he is now a dude making a difference. He embarks on extreme projects to bring attention to important global issues and inspire positive change. His life is an embodiment of Gandhi’s philosophy, “Be the change you wish to see in the world."


After the lecture Rob will be hosting an interactive workshop ‘Be the change’, in which there is further time for questions and discussion. This workshop is freely accessible and will take place from 13.25 onwards in the Blauwe Zaal. It is not necessary to register for the workshop in advance. 

This event is initiated and organized by Lonneke Boons (Academic Advisor Mechanical Engineering) in cooperation with Studium Generale.
