Seek Discomfort Day

16 May, 17:00 – 20:00

🎙️ Starting a podcast while studying? Selling things online while striving for sustainability? Tackling the mental health crisis? 

Whatever side project you’re setting up, you should be proud that you are going outside of your comfort zone. 🚀

Join us for Seek Discomfort Day!🌟 Where you can meet fellow students going through the same “uncomfortable” journey, share ideas, face fun challenges, and build connections with people from different universities and disciplines in The Hague. 🎉

People who registered before May 1 will have access to a starter toolkit worth 200€
