One World Sussex | Celebrate Diversity | Engage,  Educate, Entertain 

One World Sussex is run collaboratively by the University of Sussex and the Students' Union. It is a celebration of the diversity of cultures in our community.

The array of nationalities and cultures making up our community at the University was the inspiration for us to put on events which engage, educate and entertain - from raising awareness of global concerns through lectures, to celebrating cultural festivals and putting on dance shows - all under the One World Sussex umbrella.

We hope to nurture the integration of all our students and staff through this sharing of cultures, and to promote our shared identity as a global community.

One World Sussex aims to:

  • Develop an appreciation of different cultures

  • Cultivate an understanding of global issues

  • Showcase personal development opportunities

  • Highlight international opportunities for Sussex students and staff from different backgrounds

  • Foster a sense of global community
