EUMIND (Europe meets India) is a platform for students to have cultural exchange between the Netherlands and India, helping students to acquire cultural, historical and socio-economic knowledge of the other country. To adapt to differences in different cultures. To increase awareness of world citizenship and assume responsibility towards global issues and challenges. JNIS partnered with Het Rijnlands Lyceum, Oegstgeest as a part of this exchange program and 17 students from JNIS visited the Netherlands from 29th May to 3rd June 2017. It was an enriching experiencing for both the groups, fostering a sense of world citizenship and social responsibly through cultural presentations and group activities.
The experience was truly eye-opening, not only in creating cultural awareness among both parties but also developing a necessary sense of independence and adaptability. Students were exposed to different forms of Dutch heritage such as the Anne Frank House, which is of tremendous historical value, located in Amsterdam, along with other magnificent architectural structures during the tour of Leiden.
Aside from the benefits of learning about the Dutch lifestyle, each participant established long-lasting bonds with the welcoming friends from abroad and their hospitable families.
