One World Week - Monday 27 January

One World Week logoOne World Week, the world's largest student run international event, returns to Warwick from 25 January-2 February 2014. During the week the campus comes alive with a series of debates and discussions, parades and performances, a host of sporting tournaments and events and cultural exhibitions and workshops.

Monday 27 January itinerary:


The Breach of Privacy in the Digital Age:

The talk will address how spending so much of our lives online facilitates easy access to people's information. The NSA and GCHQ scandals have led us to know just how much of our life is policed by exterior forces. The rise of other movements such as Wikileaks or Anonymous questions whether anything can be kept secret or private in our day and age. The panel will discuss the extent of these discoveries and whether their consequences are to be desired or fought.

Woods-Scawen lecture room on the ground floor of Warwick Arts Centre 6pm-8pm


Market Day:

One World Week will host two Market Days, characterised by the various regions along the silk road journeying from the East to West. These two days will feature exciting interactive stalls provided by the Cultural Societies of Warwick's Students' Union, each offering insight into their unique and diverse heritage.

SU Atrium, 1pm-5pm


The Sports element of One World Week encourages students to participate in a variety of different sports and activities. Mondays activities include:

  • Cricket 6s
  • Rugby 7s/9s

Rise: A World Music Concert:

This event fuses classical, modern, contemporary, and jazz music into an evening of exciting cultural performances. Collaborating with the Cultural Societies, this event truly shows the diversity of talent present among university students.

Arts Center Theatre, 7:30pm-21:30pm

One World Conference

The week concludes with the One World Conference, a platform for students from all over the world to come together and discuss topics related to making the optimum use of their time at university and what their future after university will be like. Sessions for 2014 will look at border control and freedom of movement, UN responsibility for providing basic education worldwide and corporations and the collapse of the economy.
