On Thursday 5 April, One World Week will begin. Up until 11 April, you can participate in many cultural and sports activities, such as games, workshops, lectures, food, fashion, music, and much more. See, for example, in the Wisdom & Wonder Pavilion how a Chinese student studied 100 years, and even longer ago.

WUR is organising this week as it would like students, staff members, and residents of Wageningen to get to know more about each other’s culture and by doing so, to understand each other better. That knowledge can help us live and work together.

Today, around lunch time, Rector Magnificus Arthur Mol will signal the launch for this cultural week by opening the photo exhibit Gender Free Zone in Orion. Later on, a fashion show will also take place there. In the evening, the kick-off of Green Impact will take place, a match that Green Office is organising to gather applicable sustainable ideas to make our work environment “greener”.

One World Week is not limited to Orion. In the Speaker Corner in Impulse, you will learn more about Makefactory, which has designed the interior of seven different interactive homes in Forum. Another option is to experience a day in the life of a traditional Chinese student at the Wisdom & Wonder Pavilion. And you can dance until the early hours at the opening party of student association KSV.
