Happy UWC Day 2022 to all UWC community members, friends and supporters! Happening each year on 21 September, and coinciding with the International Day of Peace, this year we celebrate under the theme Peace Begins with Us to reflect on our collective responsibility toward building a more peaceful future for us all. There are many exciting events taking place all over the world today (and in the days to come), so make sure to and keep an eye on our global map for a glimpse of what UWC schools and colleges, alumni groups and national committees are doing in honour of UWC Day 2022. And if you are running a UWC Day event and promoting it on social media, be sure to tag us (@uwcint / @uwcinternational) so we can re-share!

60th Anniversary Celebrations

60th Anniversary visualMaking this year’s UWC Day even more special, today we also announce the beginning of UWC’s 60th anniversary celebrations under the overall theme: EDUCATING FOR PEACE. Striving to change the world since 1962.

What started in October 1962 with the founding of our first college, UWC Atlantic, has now grown into a thriving global movement, which includes 18 schools and colleges, hundreds of short courses, more than 4,000 volunteers, 60,000 alumni, educators, partners, donors, students, and staff.

To mark this special milestone of 60 years of education for peace, we are celebrating with the whole UWC community over the next twelve months - honouring the changemakers that have made UWC possible, reflecting on our journey so far, and looking forward to the next 60 years. Head over to our UWC’s 60th anniversary website page to check out some of the anniversary events that are already taking place, and find out how you can join in and also share your own initiatives!

Join us on 30 September for a Live Event!

Speakers will include UWC President, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, UWC International's Executive Director, Faith Abiodun, as well as many others from across the UWC movement. We hope as many members of the UWC community as possible will join us from all over the world: please register your attendance here!

Our 60th anniversary is a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on our journey, but to also reaffirm our mission to come together as a global community committed to making our world a better place for current and future generations.
