Fuck the future,
We've waited long enough. Now is the time for change. This is our time, our future.
Ignore the status quo. Listen listen to the rebels, dreamers and idealists. Because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Earth won't wait for us to change. The climate crisis will worsen inequalities between rich and the rest of the world. We know what to do. All over the world young people are standing up for climate justice. Now it's time for politicians to act.
We believe in international cooporation that benefits everyone, not just the multinationals. We want a stronger Europe, fighting for human rights accross the globe. We demand equality, a basic income and free education for all.
No god is going to help us. In science we trust. Power belongs to the people.
DWARS Rotterdam Rijnmond: Since 2017 I've been active for DWARS, the youth organisation of GroenLinks. Currently, I am in the board of DWARS Rotterdam-Rijnmond, being responsible for our social media, website and newsletter. I was active in the campaign committee during the municipal elections, the combined elections for the Provinces and Water Boards and the European elections. Previously, I was part of the audit committee.
Erasmus Change: Together with about thirty other students at Erasmus University College, a climate action group was started in March 2019. I developed our website and set up a newsletter.
GroenLinks Enschede: During the Dutch national elections of 2017, I was part of GroenLinks's grass-root campaign in Enschede as member of the Campaigning committee. I was responsible for designing campaigning material for our social media platforms.
Student Council Kottenpark: Working closely together with the other members of the Student Council, I managed our social media, organised numerous events, and represented fellow students by advising the school's management team.
Web development: In my spare time, I like to stay up-to-date about the latest technological developments. See some of my work here: Arjen Y. Hoekstra | United European Progressives
