UWC Congress 2016

The UWC Congress is now sold out, but you can join the waiting list here.

UWC is inviting the whole community to participate in the UWC Congress 2016, which will take place on 28th and 29th October in Trieste, Italy. The UWC Congress is the biggest UWC event and brings together members from across UWC - current students, alums, current and former staff from all UWC schools and colleges, national committee volunteers, governors, donors - alongside friends and supporters of the UWC movement.

Inspired by the words “Connect, Challenge, Celebrate”, the UWC Congress will represent two days of celebration, challenging discussions and connecting and reconnecting with new and old friends, and the UWC mission and values. The programme includes more than 60 sessions along four thematic streams: Education, National Committees, Engagement & Outreach and Growth & Financial Sustainability. Participants will reflect about the role of diversity and education in today’s world, discuss key issues and questions UWC is facing today, including challenges and opportunities for the movement, and feed into relevant parts of the next UWC strategy. 


UWC Day is an annual reminder and celebration of all that's positive about being part of the UWC community. On the same day, people from across the UWC community participate in activities all around the world, ranging from large organised events to small reunions with fellow UWCers. In 2016, the UWC movement will celbrate UWC Day on 21st September: stay tuned for more information! And if you are organizing a UWC Day event, send us details and a description of the event, together with a picture, and we will post it in this section of the website.
