Earth Hour – IE Energy Club

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Social

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

IE Energy Club President with the winner

The event is held annually encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on a specific day towards the end of March, as a symbol of commitment to the planet. It was started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns across 172 countries. This year Earth Hour was held on March 25th from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

For encouraging more and more people to celebrate the Earth Hour and to increase awareness among everyone regarding the importance of mankind’s commitment towards the conservation of the planet, IE along with IE Energy Club undertook a Social Media Campaign in which participants had a chance to win an IE Backpack (sponsored by the IE Store and made from 100% recycled nylon fishing nets). The participants had to just post a photo of their IE Earth Hour on the night of March 25th on their social media account using the hashtag #IEEarthHour – switch off your lights and switch on your social power to #ChangeClimateChange.

From the many entries received, the winner of the IE Earth Hour photo competition was Fernando Castallo, Master in Management February 2017 student. These kinds of initiatives are very necessary for the conservation of planet Earth.

“Walk With Us” campaign

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Social

Thanks to the support of the IE community who contributed to our efforts to raise funds for the “Walk With Us” campaign, which included a pizza and drinks sale in June. Together, we have raised and donated US$500 to contribute to this amazing cause in South Africa.

Walk With Us is an effort initiated by Tom David and Warren Handley, two young South African men who became sensible to a cause and now want to raise awareness, so that no vulnerable children will ever walk alone. Their cause: abandoned children with ECD and orphans. They have decided to walk 6,000 km by foot from Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, all the way to Johannesburg in South Africa. All of this with a budget below the poverty line of US$2 per day, to raise funds that will be donated to the cause that has guided their hearts along the way.

Please visit the following link to listen to a special message from Tom and Warren.

International Down Syndrome Day

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Social

The IE Charity Club celebrated International Down Syndrome Day on the 21st of March by hosting a bake sale on campus to raise funds for the Fundación Reina de Quito, a non-profit organization that has a center in which 150 poor children with Down Syndrome receive daily therapy and additional aid for their families. We were successful and we were able to raise approximately €300 which were punctually used to purchase educational material for the children on March 30 of this same year. We received great support from Do Eat as they donated various croissants, breads and goodies that we sold at our bake sale. To raise awareness and respect for this special day we collected pictures of our community members holding a sign which read “Mi Dia Va Por Ti”, translated to “My Day goes for you” to support the foundation’s social media awareness campaign which occurs every 21st of March. We want to thank the entire community for their support in this event, like in all of the events that the IE Charity Club held during the year!

Jorge Rausch visits IE Business School’s Area 31

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional, Social

Having a top chef on a business school campus does not sound like the kind pf activity business students would regularly opt for. But when that top chef is a kitchen rockstar from South America, published author, media figure and innovator, the tables turn. Jorge Rausch is a Colombian chef who, after studying humanities, decided to follow his passion and become a cook. With an initial capital given to him by his grandmother and with the help of his brother (and eventual business partner) he launched Criterión, his first venture in Bogotá. The Rausch brother currently own and operate Bistronomy by Rausch, Rausch Energía Gastronómica, Marea by Rausch, El Gobernador by Rausch, Kitchen by Rausch e Ivory Bistro by Rausch. Criterión has been declared the best restaurants in Colombia in 2013, 2014 and 2015 according to Latin America’s “50 Best Restaurants”. He was also a judge in MasterChef Colombia. Jorge has been applauded by his initiative to catch and cook Lion Fish, who are a threat to other species in the ocean because they are merciless predators.

Global Village – The world in one single place

Written on July 27, 2017 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

With more than 90 nationalities together, IE Business School is a melting pot of cultures. That’s why, every year, the Net Impact Club organizes an event to celebrate this rich cultural diversity with joy and fun, the Global Village. A magical event where the geographic clubs present a little about their culture, with music, dance, food and drinks.

In 2016, when I was president of Brazil Club, the event took place on a sunny Thursday of June and brought together 500 people to celebrate diversity. Of course, Brazil Club had a booth there! We managed to make it an amazing day, with a presentation of capoeira, pão-de-queijo, brigadeiro, guaraná, and açaí.

It was an incredible event, not only because we could show our culture, but also because we could see and live a little of the culture of different countries. I enjoyed every second as much as possible and tried things that I had never seen before. And I loved it!

See in this link some photos of that magical day taken by Alessandra Aroeira, our photographer in Brazil Club.
