Something unique about the UWC as an educational movement, is the cooperation between the Colleges and the National Committees NC. We are fortunate to have strong NCs in all Nordic countries and work closely with them to to increase the impact we have in our region. On March 14th we co-hosted an event for new and old friends of UWC at Asia, Aker Brygge in Oslo. The focus of this Evening with Meaning was deliberate diversity.
Current students Hari and Jonathan gave a personal account about their experience, living and learning together. Alumnus Antulio Rosales from Venezuela talked about how UWC has shaped his life now as an Olso based researcher at the Centre for Development and Environmet. Chair Kristin Vinje, Harald Møller and Zoya Taylor shared why they have chosen to support UWC, each in their way. Zoya captured it with a few words:
Poverty makes invisible – Education makes visible.
