More about One World Sussex
The nationalities and cultures making up the Sussex community was the inspiration for putting on events which engage, educate and entertain – from raising awareness of global concerns through lectures to celebrating cultural festivals and putting on dance shows.
We want to unify students and staff, and promote our shared identity as a global community, through One World Sussex.
One World Sussex aims to:
- develop an appreciation of different cultures
- cultivate an understanding of global issues
- showcase personal development opportunities
- highlight international opportunities for Sussex students and staff from different backgrounds.
Due to the success of One World Week, we have extended the ‘One World’ ethos to incorporate any events and initiatives which take place throughout the year that celebrate our global diversity at Sussex.
