For the Global CIVIS Days 2021, the Université libre de Bruxelles invites members of the CIVIS community, namely the students, academics and administrative staff, to share their unique and renewed perspective on their home university within the competition How I See My Campus.
Show your favourite, or strangest, or most unexpected angle of your university!
CIVIS invites you to submit photographs showcasing the beauty, originality and strangeness of your university, or even the university community’s reunion with their home. The pictures may represent special or secret spots on the campus, notable or curious decoration, or any other fantastic or funny view on your campus and university spaces. The images can focus on the features in question, or show the university community interacting with the place and each other.
The selected photographs (around 5 per university) will be part of the first CIVIS Exhibition. This will be unveiled as we launch the Global CIVS days in Brussels on 24 November 2021 and will then travel among the nine member universities.
