connectUS is a prestigious project, now in its 13th year, organized by students for students at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW).
This year’s project developed the topic “Sustain and Gain”. The main goal of it, is to introduce the participants to the different aspects of our concept “Learning by Sharing”. Furthermore, insights into the cultural differences between the US, Canada and Switzerland.
In addition to that, the following goals are set for the Preparatory and On-Site Seminar, which are the core parts of the project:
- Encouraging discussions
- Enabling new ways of learning
- Exploring “Sustain & Gain”
- Learning from Experts
However, given the health and safety issues raised by the pandemic, we have decided to not hold the On-Site Seminar in Canada.
But this should not prevent us from achieving our goals. We strongly reassure you that our project team will organize an exciting and enriching On-Site Seminar in Switzerland.
We are looking forward to taking you with us on our journey!
