This year, the International Education Committee would like students to go on an educational journey exploring what it means to be sustainable.

The event takes place Nov. 16 – 20 on the WCC campus and carries the theme:   “Sustainability – It’s More than Just Going Green.”

International Education Week encourages the participation of students around the world to engage, promote and exchange cultural experiences.

Students are encouraged to pick up a “Green Passport” from the student services room in ‘Ākoakoa 232 or at the library entrance. The passport will have all the week’s activities, including times and locations of events.

During each event, students can have that activity stamped. Then at the end of the week, students can turn in their passports to enter for a raffle prize.

The more activities attended, the higher the chance the student can win!
