The Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) hosted the Student International Culture Day on Saturday, 28th July, 2018 at its campus in Palapye.
The international cultural day provided an opportunity to deepen the understanding of the community values, enhance multiculturalism, aligned to the objective to ‘support and contribute to the realisation of national economic and social development; contribute to the cultural and social life of the community’. Cultural diversity is a driving force of development, not only with respect to economic growth, but also as a means of leading a more fulfilling intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual life.
The one day cultural festivities included but not limited to diverse traditional games, food, performance, pomp and dance showcased by local artists including our Local and International BIUST Students. Key stakeholders among them the BIUST staff, the Serowe/Palapye Local authorities and the locality were invited.
