International Development Week (IDW)
International Development Week (IDW) is an opportunity to explore how Canada and Canadians are making a difference around the world!
For 31 years, IDW has taken place during the first full week of February. This year, it will take place from February 7 to 13, 2021.
Bow Valley College will join the world in celebrating IDW with a full week of events to show the significant contribution that international education makes to our social, economic, and cultural well-being and to support Canada’s ongoing efforts to engage on the international stage.
During the International Development Week, partners, students and staffs are invited to participate in the different activities we have organized for the Bow Valley College Community. The week will be filled with events and guest speakers who will promote internationalization and foster discussions with students, faculty and staff on today’s pressing issues and tomorrow’s innovative solutions. IDW will celebrate Bow Valley College’s international diversity and activities while providing students and staffs with the opportunity to understand the global issues.
The goals of the week are to:
• Educate the Bow Valley College community (partners, students and employees) on global issues.
• Encourage the Bow Valley College community to get involved with solutions for global issues.
• Promote sustainability at Bow Valley College.
• Motivate students to get involved with clubs, activities, events and organizations that promote development.
