One World Sussex

One World Week 2018 is taking place from Monday 19 - Friday 23 March 2018, with a special 'Culturefest' warm up event from the African Caribbean Society on the evening of Friday 16 March!

You can see the full programme of events by visiting www.sussexstudent.com/oww.

If you have an idea for a cultural event to be scheduled outside of the main One World Week, you can discuss this with us and apply for funding to support your event. We call these One World Sussex events.

What is the difference between 'One World Sussex' and 'One World Week'?

‘One World Week’ happens at Sussex in March each year and aims to celebrate the diversity of our campus community, raise awareness of global issues, and encourage cultural understanding.  Take a look at the programme for 2018., and at the video at the right hand side of this page to get an idea of what One World Week involves. Due to the success of that week, we have extended the ‘One World’ ethos to incorporate any events and initiatives which take place outside of the main week in March, but which still celebrate our global diversity at Sussex.

How can I or my department, club, or society get involved with One World Sussex during the year?

Use the logo: 

You may wish for your event to have the ‘One World Sussex’ logo on its promotional materials, so that students and staff know that the event in some way celebrates the ‘One World’ ethos of cultural inclusivity and awareness.  Use of the ‘One World Sussex’ logo is restricted and must be permitted by both International Student Support and the Students’ Union, so if you would like to use it for your event then please complete an application form and email it to international.support@sussex.ac.uk. To clarify, you can apply to use the logo even if you don’t want to apply for any funding.

Bid for funding:

The ‘One World Fund' is available to financially support the activities of staff and student groups/societies who wish to put on an event, either during One World Week in March, or throughout the year.

If you would like to bid for funding, please download the application form on the right of this page and email it to international.support@sussex.ac.uk

How can I or my department, club or society get involved with One World Week 2018?

We are no longer accepting event proposals for One World Week 2018, but you can attend any of the scheduled events and activities taking place across the week. All events are open to the whole University of Sussex community, and most of them are free of charge. To see the full programme, visit www.sussexstudent.com/oww or download your copy of the programme here.

For an informal chat about your event ideas with someone from the One World Week organising committee, please email us at international.support@sussex.ac.uk.

If you would like to bid for funding, please download the application form on the right of this page and email it to international.support@sussex.ac.uk

A look back at a previous One World Week

Thousands of students have taken part in One World Week since it was launched at Sussex in 2014 by attending events or contributing to the programme with their own events.

Take a look at our video montage of some of the highlights from 2016:

Student societies were at the heart of the week and organised many cultural events that showcased food, language, and culture.
