In relation to the Year of Sustainability, University Centre for Environmental Studies and Sustainable Development, the Art & Environment Foundation and Orgacom organised the event DeXM/OverOvermorgen. Orgacom collaborated with students from the Catholic University Nijmegen (as of 1 September 2004, Radboud University Nijmegen) on an art project. The event was curated by Niek Verschoor of the Art and Environment Foundation. Under the heading 'It's a green thing' Orgacom organized a workshop that tried to lighten up the topic sustainability, which all too often seems to be plagued with an air of seriousness. The workshop resulted in a performance in which Teike en Elias dressed in green outfits handed out orange coloured fines on post-it notes to draw attention to unsustainable situations. People that behave in ways that display awareness of sustainability were nominated to be deputy sheriffs. The orange fines were reading: 'Take a bike', 'Lights out', 'Use less paper' and 'This is wrong'. The fines stimulated discussions between Orgacom and the recipients. The EKOpolice is still performed occasionally by students from several universities:
The LHUMP has organised two EKOpolice actions
-tuesday Mrach 9th 2004 at the Dutch National Youth Counsil in Utrecht.
-Thursday April 14th 2005 in three student recidencies at the Ina Boudier Bakkerlaan campus in Utrecht.
