University

Diversity is a spice of life. To celebrate the richness that multicultural society brings, SWPS University will be hosting the first edition of International Days at its Warsaw Campus, on May 12-13, 2017. The goal of the event is to provide common space for people from different countries and cultures, to share their experiences and discuss vital issues related to functioning in a multicultural society. Most importantly, we would like to empower everyone and to recognize and celebrate the richness of the cultural diversity.

To facilitate smooth communication between the speakers of various languages, we will host the event in English.

Conference participants will include representatives of international businesses, local authorities, NGOs, academics, and international students, who will present their personal views on living and working in Poland. The two-day Conference will be a great opportunity to gain knowledge, get inspired, and find solutions to everyday problems.

The courtyard of our Warsaw Campus will be transformed into a space where cultural performances and booths with culinary delicacies from around the world will reflect the essence of diversity present at SWPS University and in Warsaw. Students, representing over 20 nationalities, will show the essence of their cultures and their home countries. Additionally, the local restaurants and specialized food trucks will provide international food fair, which will ensure that no one will go hungry.
