My name is Frederike and I am 21 years old. Together with nine other students from Lancaster University Management School, I was chosen to attend to WBCSD in Chennai, India this October. Vanakaam is Tamil and means hello. When I first heard that I will be attending the conference, the first thing I did was typing in YouTube and searching for “Hindi for Beginners”. After a few days and a few new Hindi sentences in my head I found out that in the south of India, Tamil is the predominant language. So “Tamil for Beginners” it is now 🙂 .
Jay here. I am a second year Management and Entrepreneurship student at Lancaster University, and I am delighted to be selected as one of the ten students being sent off to Chennai for the Annual General Meeting of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
Seeing as ten students will be going to Chennai for the WBCSD, I thought I’d answer ten questions to introduce myself.
Hi! Katie here. I’m about to go into my second year of studying Management, Politics and International Relations and I am particularly interested in the relationship between businesses and organisations across borders. These relationships don’t only include day to day trade but also the cooperative efforts made to address global issues- this is the reason why this trip, to meet with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, took my eye!
Hey! Alice here and I am one of lucky ten students off to India to work at the World’s Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) representing Lancaster University. During this trip, I will be given the opportunity to participate in the conference of ‘Action2020’, which focuses on nine priority areas and then aims to solve them by implementing business change.
