IC Week 2018: Broadening the Scope

  • IC Week 2018: Broadening the Scope

The following blog post was written by Tahira Ebrahim, Centre Liaison Officer at the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement.  

The Intercultural Centre invites you to engage with Intercultural Week (IC Week). This year’s events take place from Monday, March 19 to Friday, March 23. 

This year’s theme revolves around the concept of broadening the scope of our lens. How can we as global citizens increase our sensitivity and awareness of others? As we understand our interdependence on an individual and community level, we can begin to conceptualize how another's concerns and needs are as necessary to support as our own. IC Week 2018 aims to support participants in this journey, through activities that reflect the values, attitudes, and behaviours of competent global citizenship. This year's events include:
