International Carnival x Virtual Triathlon bring students on virtual world tour

29 Oct, 2021
img The HKBU School of Business hosted the International Carnival x Virtual Triathlon on 1-27 October 2021 to celebrate cultural diversity and cross-cultural understanding on campus. To fix the craving for travelling, the carnival and triathlon brought students to “experience the world” through a great variety of online and offline games and activities.

The carnival synthesized global education, Esports and cultural crafts that introduced students to the School’s and University’s extensive overseas network and partnership. Part of the campus was transformed into a global village that shares and promotes diverseity and multiculturalism; activities challenged students to collaborate on a virtual basis and think out of the box with technological solutions. The School has also partnered with student organisations such as AIESEC and the Esports Society as part of its mission to train young leaders by empowering them to make meaningful and autonomous decisions.

The tailor-made Virtual Triathlon brought participants to experience a virtual marathon (run/ walk/ hike) to tour Rome’s or New York’s best attractions and famous landmarks, indoor cycling and rowing from 1 to 27 October 2021. Participants joined the region of their choice and must complete the three assigned sports.
