International Women’s Day in Maastricht

We look forward to welcoming you for our evening event about female empowerment.

On Thursday March 7th, we celebrate International Women’s Day at UWC Maastricht. It will be an evening around our Female Empowerment Project, which changes the lives of young women, their families and communities! Thanks to our loyal supporters, these heroines develop into resilient, self-supportive, critical role models who inspire their sisters, cousins and friends in pursuing their dreams. To celebrate our network of powerful, entrepreneurial and socially engaged women, we invite you for an inspiring evening about Education for Change.

Date: 07 March 2024 | Time: 15.30 – 19.30h | Location:  UWC Maastricht 



Part 1: Living Library

15.30 – 17.00: In collaboration with Knooppunt, a student-led service, you can visit our ‘Living Library’. This is a dynamic and interactive concept where people serve as ‘books,’ sharing their personal experiences, knowledge and perspectives with others, fostering dialogue and understanding within a community. As a participant, you will be able to “borrow” our living books through conversations, gaining valuable insights and diverse viewpoints.


Part 2: Female Empowerment Experience

17.00 – 19.30h: Small bites & getting to know each other, music, student stories, conversation with role models and Sana Bardawil’s story: ambassador of our Female Empowerment Project. She will share her experience with and in the Middle-East and the potential of UWC education for girls in that region.
