LocationHardewikerstraat 7

As we will be having our yearly SIB trip to Georgia and Armenia, this Monday, the travel committee will organise a film night about Georgia! The film concerns war between Georgia and Russia in 2008. If you would love to know more about what happened then or see what it feels like to be caught behind enemy lines, trying desperately to survive, then come tonight for this movie. This movie gives you some background information on the location of the trip, so especially for the participants it's recommended to come! The ticket price is only €2, and it takes place at Hardewikerstraat 7.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Different Aspects of Traditional Energy Markets

Different Aspects of Traditional Energy Markets
09-04-2015 20:00
LocationSenaatskamer, Academy building, RUG

Traditional energy, such as oil and gas, today still dominates 82% of the total energy market. According to the Energy Information Administration, this number is not going to drop heavily before 2040, with a 78% share in that year. In addition, traditional energy still plays a dominant role in politics, with large producers as Russia and Saudi-Arabia proving to use it for their political agenda. Moreover, issues surrounding traditional energy are highly relevant in the light of recent events, such as the drastic fall of oil prices, the current geopolitical tensions, and an increasingly assertive Russia.

Therefore NGIZ Noord and SIB Groningen will organize a symposium on 9 April together about the different aspects of the traditional energy market. We will discuss the dynamics between the different governments, businesses and financial markets. There will be multiple speakers, among which Hans van Cleef, Senior Sector Economy Energy at the ABN Amro, who will speak about the energy market from a financial perspective and Michel Dubbelboer, Russian Market Analyst of Gasterra, who will speak about the European gasmarket and the role of Russia and other supplies in this market.

Join us this night at 20:00 in the Senaatskamer in the Academy Building of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen

Workshop on Fishbanks

Workshop on Fishbanks
13-04-2015 20:00
LocationHardewikerstraat 7

Tonight, we have a workshop planned for you guys! This workshop is about Fishbanks. During this we will have an interactive exploration of the dynamics of renewable resource sustainability from the social, financial and environmental perspectives.

For this, we will play the role of fishers or fishing companies and we will have to try to maximize our profit by competing to catch as many fish as possible without finishing stocks. The oceans have many fish accessible to every fisherman. The object and challenge of this is to catch as many fish as possible and not overtax fish stocks while competing with other fishermen.

The participants will have to try to maximize their net worth as they compete and deal with variations in fish stocks and their catch. Participants can buy, sell, and build ships; decide where to fish; and negotiate with one another.
Come tonight to experience what it would be like to be in a business environment like this one and have to compete with other people!
