How to get involved

As a student, you can bid for funding to put on your own event as part of One World Week or throughout the year.

The One World Fund has been set up to support the activities of student groups and societies.

See how to apply for funding through the Students’ Union website.

One World Week is full of fun and interesting events and activities. If hosting an event is not something you want to do, you can still take part by attending events throughout the week.

More about One World Sussex

The nationalities and cultures making up the Sussex community was the inspiration for putting on events that 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.
