One World Week will take place in February 2004 in and around Cambridge University...

Its aims are to educate people about social, environmental and cultural issues through various mediums such as talks, theatre, events, film and debates...

Although it does have a serious message, to make people more aware of social inequality and environmental concerns, it is also designed to celebrate cultural diversity...
