Attendees were allowed to enjoy a variety of food, ceviche from Peru, sausages from South Africa, and waffles from Belgium. The performances were are varied. Children from Georgia performed a traditional dance, The Brazilian club presented a traditional compote performance, and the Indian club performed an amazing traditional song and dance.

The event focused on more than just food and dance, it was a chance for the student of IE to show our their culture and history. All participants were able to travel the world in an afternoon and experience the diversity and heritages present at IE.

Last Tuesday members of Net Impact Club had a community dinner event at La Vaqueria Montanesa.  We bonded over delicious, locally sourced food while discussing topics related to sustainable business practices. La Vaqueria Montanesa is a restaurant dedicated to simplicity and honesty in their business. As members of Net impact we love that they focus on being “green” and source their meat directly from ethical farmers whose cattle roam free. This was a fantastic event to get to know one another and Madrid better while enjoying some of the best caprese salad, and roast chicken one can find!

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!
