Ad hoc Voluntary Tasks
Of course the opportunity to volunteer is not only available for one given week. On several occasions, members of the Sustainability Network, or even our students, approached us with an idea or opportunity in which we managed to involve others as well. A good example of this is during Christmas 2019 (after the food labelling which was organised during Volunteer Week), we organised another joint activity with the team from the Food Bank. Our university also joined the usual Christmas fundraiser and for 3 days we assisted the Újhegy Auchan store to collect durable foodstuffs for those in need. In the end, our weekend was extremely successful: at the of the 3-day collection we had amassed 1,275 kg of donations, and the experience was unforgettable!

The bottom line is that we have created a platform to make the existing intellectual products of our inner community available to each other and the outside world, and to collect voluntary personal offerings. It is a huge pride that we currently have nearly 150 free-to-use materials and 14 personal offerings. We were also curious about how members of the inner community helped others during the virus situation, so we did a short survey:
