Dear all,

I would like to welcome you to our third International Week. Last year we had to cancel our International Week as a result of the worldwide pandemic, but this year we decided to continue the initiative in a digital format. We will welcome students and colleagues from around the globe, including the US, Japan, Germany and, of course, the Netherlands. Although the different time zones create challenges, we hope we’ve developed an interesting program for all of you. Our school and our programs endorse the UN’s sustainable development goals, so the program for International Week  includes many topics related to sustainability.

I wish you all a very interesting week with a lot of new knowledge, new contacts and, above all, a lot of fun with each other.
