IDays is an opportunity to share culture, international experience, research and interests while celebrating TRU’s international community and international collaborations.
Celebrating Culture, Diversity and Innovation
IDays 2019 will explore these themes as a means to better understand how Kamloops is embedded in a wider regional and global exchange of culture, commerce, and ideas, and how the local connects to the global. To build on the tradition of integrating the UN's Sustainable Development Goals into the week's events, IDays will link the local to the global, and highlight the importance of:
- Sustainable Cities and Communities
- Access to Quality Education
- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
- Partnership as a Means to Achieve Goals
These themes relate to at least two of TRU's strategic priorities: increasing intercultural understanding and sustainability. The purpose of IDays is to engage TRU's faculty, staff, and students — alongside the wider community — in learning, dialogue, storytelling, and festivities that focus the mind and the heart on how culture, diversity, and innovation can interact to form a positive and inclusive foundation for a vibrant and sustainable community.
