Wittenborg CEO Maggie Feng was invited this month to join an online event marking 75 years of the United Nations (UN). The event highlighted 75 years of peace and freedom as well as the sustainable development goals of the UN's 2030 Agenda. Fellow speakers included the mayor of Apeldoorn, Ton Heerts, and other dignitaries, including Director International Organizations & Human Rights of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Gerard Steeghs and Climate Envoy for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Marcel Beukeboom.

Feng showcased the actions Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has taken the past few years to make the world more connected via its international classrooms. Wittenborg is one of the most international institutions of higher education in the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, Wittenborg student, Niloufar Abouheidari, set up a student team for UNICEF  in Apeldoorn earlier this year. UNICEF is the United Nations Children's Fund responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.
