Centennial, The GenWell Project partner to encourage international students to make face-to-face connections


Centennial College public relations students have partnered with The GenWell Project to host a challenge that will encourage international students to build face-to-face connections in Canada. The #traveltheworldin28days challenge was launched as part of the Face-to-Face February campaign, which encourages students to explore their city’s neighbourhoods. Everyone is invited to participate in the challenge, but the campaign focuses on bringing awareness to the challenges that international students face as they study in a foreign country. The GenWell Project will post a challenge each day on its social media platforms, encouraging students to engage in experiences such as international cuisine, outdoor activities, cultural conversations, and community events and celebrations.
