Sustainable Introduction of the Humanities Career Night 2022

The Humanities Career Night will start at 6 pm with a joint introduction by Jon Kahler and Spandan Joshi & Tiemen Wagenvoort from The Green Office Utrecht University.


“Sustainability has always been at the heart of everything I do. I remember taking a business course on corporate sustainability and being inspired by the possibility of change. It’s what motivated me to eventually pursue my MA in environmental and climate ethics!”

Jon Kahler, Environmental Ethicist & Communicator

That means: communicating ideas about sustainability and environmentalism through ethical copywriting, environmental writing and educational video’s in which he explores the larger questions of how we relate to nature, its non-human inhabitants, and the world at large. These questions can do a lot to inform how we ought to move forward as individuals, businesses, and as members of planet earth.

Next to this mission Jon worked as a Sustainability & Ethical Advisor Circle That and copywriter for Biome Eco Stores. He holds a master in Applied Ethics from Utrecht University and postgraduate education in Philosophy (Melbourne University) and  Circular Economies & Sustainability Strategies (Cambridge University) on top of a  Bachelor in Entrepeneurship and Business.
