The International Week: enter an international virtual experience
On Tuesday, 2 February and Wednesday, 3 February a dedicated group of students from Hogeschool Zuyd will hold a digital event with the goal to increase cultural and international awareness among young people in Maastricht and across the Euregio Meuse-Rhine.
We live in a globalised world that is becoming increasingly interconnected. Humans as social beings thrive to their fullest when they can collaborate, interact, speak with each other. Especially in such difficult times as now, social connections are more important than ever. The International Week offers a platform to do exactly that: meet new people, have a chat and network, all under the heading "internationality".
Our reporter Saskia met with Isabelle Despicht, a third year European Studies student and one of the International Week's organisers, and talked about the event and how to join the great lectures, quizzes, speed friending rounds and other activities that are part of it.
