GLOBAL VILLAGE

Written on July 23, 2018 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

On April 26, IE’s Net Impact Club, together with Campus Life, hosted an incredibly successful “Global Village” event, which many students commented was one of the highlights of their year at IE. The event brought together over 500 students across IE programs with booths representing over 35 countries. We spent one of the first sunny spring days in April celebrating IE’s incredible diversity with food, drink, music, dancing, and art. The various clubs took to the stage with sumo wrestlers from Japan, dances from Colombia, mariachi music from Mexico, dances from numerous cultures by the Dance Club, samba from Brazil, a belly dancer from Lebanon, and so much more. Net Impact hosted a booth to share more about the club’s objectives, educate students about business with a positive social and environmental impact, and to share efforts Net Impact made to reduce the environmental impact of the event, such as donating 540€ to World Wildlife Fund’s ecosystem conservation efforts to offset the event’s impact, raised from ticket sales and a raffle.

Net Impact is grateful for the enthusiastic participation from the various country clubs and representatives, support from Campus Life, and support from our wonderful sponsors (particularly Delta, Atletico Madrid, and Mahou).

We are so proud of our school’s diversity and we loved celebrating it with everyone. We can’t wait till next year!
