Featuring a wide range of events led by staff, departments, students and societies, highlighting our global impact and cultural diversity across the University, Global Week 2024 will run from Saturday 24 February to Sunday 3 March 2024 (week 8 of Epiphany Term).
Our aim is to have as many members of the University community as possible involved in Global Week in some way. We're encouraging everyone to attend our events and also offering you the opportunity to create your own event to be included in the Programme.
"I am delighted that, through Durham Global Week, we can recognise the contribution of our international staff and students, celebrate some of the amazing work that is going on and learn from each other in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding."
