Looking back on Durham Global Week 2023
The first ever Durham Global Week was a resounding success, with 38 events including panel discussions, workshops, language taster sessions, world music and dance, international movie viewings, a multilingual pub quiz and student takeovers of cafés around campus.
Many of the events were hybrid, allowing guests to attend in person or online. We launched a new Global Durham section of our website. Our official social media accounts published 68 posts and 21 stories, reaching 34,000 followers. We received 265,238 impressions, 2,800 engagements, 1,400 reactions and gained 1,539 new followers across all channels. The #DUGlobalWeek hashtag was used 258 times between 22 February and 11 March.
Staff and students were recognised for their contributions to building the University's international reputation and partnerships at the Global Durham Awards, which were held following a celebratory dinner at Stephenson College on 10 March.
