Global Village is the largest celebration of cultures from around the world hosted by AIESEC, encouraging social sustainability, world awareness, and cross-cultural understanding.
It is an annual national event organized by AIESEC Sri Lanka that brings together young people from various cultural backgrounds together to celebrate multi ethnicity, cross culture and global citizenship. It is a time of festivity that strives towards promoting peace and harmony by bridging the gaps and differences among countries.
Global Village 2022 was held on the 30th of January 2022 from 1pm onwards, at the Colombo City Center. Foreign Exchange Participants of AIESEC Sri Lanka coloured the event with a showcase of their nations through singing, dancing, food, costumes, music and traditions through dedicated country booths and a wide spectacle of cultural performances.
The event also brought together AIESEC members and alumni to engage with cultural booths, performances and of course, jives. Attendees of all ages were able to enjoy a taste of traditional cuisine from a host of countries and territories including India, The Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Spain and France and learn fun facts and stories from the exchange participants. Global Village was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with people from all over the world in a single location.
