Tobias Halfpaap, one of the department of international and institutional economics' two student assistants, has been asked to provide a report on his experiences and thoughts about his semester abroad in Valencia. This Spanish letter is addressed especially to those who are thinking about studying abroad for some time:
With all of the new and returning students, we want to take this opportunity to inform you about this student-led organization, active across Germany and Switzerland. Standing for student network for ethics in economics and practice, sneep is of interest to international management students because it stimulates the critical discourse about ethics both in theory and in practice, that is in science, politics and business. Flensburg has a local group of students both from the EUF and the HS. In the last year they have, for instance, organized movie nights with discussions, offered a workshop for up-cycling, raised awareness for the amount of waste caused by coffee cups, and raised funds for social projects by selling Glühwein.
About the experience of being a sneep member, Tobias Halfpaap said:
Hopeful minds are happy minds.
Leo Bormans and Lannoo publishers recently released an English version of The World Book of Hope - The source of happiness, success & strength as their third volume, following The World Book of Happiness and The World Book of Love.
