Did you know that from 1 August 2020 it will be forbidden to smoke in and around the buildings of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences? As of August 1st 2020 an amendment has been included in the Tobacco Act that smoking is no longer allowed inside and outside all educational institutions in the Netherlands. This measure applies to primary schools, secondary schools, institutes of higher professional education (MBO- and HBO) and universities.
Why a ban on smoking?
As many young people smoke their first cigarette at school, the government wants to reduce these numbers. Young people are sensitive to the exemplary behavior of people around them. A smoke-free schoolyard sets a norm that smoking is not normal.
