As part of a multicultural student body at Coventry University, our members have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of our planet’s international diversity, by discovering the customs and traditions of a wide range of cultures.
Our members have the chance to explore and embrace different aspects relating to a state’s cultural heritage, including art, history, cuisine and more, through weekly seminars and workshops, as well as various trips and events throughout the year.
One World Society welcomes students from all walks of life, to learn about each other, whilst sharing their own experiences of culture, supported by a friendly and dedicated committee.
Join us and discover how truly united we are in diversity!
Aims of One World Society
1. To offer students the chance to explore different country’s folklores by analysing traditional customs and finding similarities and dissimilarities.
2. To enhance student's knowledge by attempting to understand the reason behind different state's traditional art, holidays, outfits, music, customs, etc.
3. To help students to gain a better understanding of their language and of other languages by examining their etymological development.
4. To support students to discover university's cultural diversity, by explaining their traditions and folklore and exploring other new cultures.
5. To encourage students to appreciate every culture by trying to understand global diversity and by being more tolerant towards other state's customs.
Our first meeting of this academic year will be on Tuesday 24th September in William Morris 128 from 6pm-8pm. Our first meeting will be an icebreaker to welcome all new and returning members. We look forward to seeing you there!
