Meet the world

Meet the World is a monthly international 45-minute news program during lunch time, held at the Esplanade Building (Black Box). During these sessions, a panel will discuss current day topics. The panel consists of students and experts from various backgrounds and cultures to stimulate the discussion from different perspectives. The audience can freely mingle with the discussion to broaden everyone's view on the current day topics. Meet the World is an initiative by the Academic Forum and is being supported by Extra Muros, the study association of Liberal Arts and Sciences.


Towards an international campus
