On June 25, 2015 our Columbia University Club Belgium hosted the unique conference on "TTIP – Pending Trade Negotiations between the US and the EU: A Boon or a Threat to our Industries and Societies?".
With over 40 alumni members present, the debate moderated by Daniela Vincenti, editor-in-chief at EurActiv.com saw a distinguished set of experts:
Karel De Gucht, former European Commissioner for Trade
Anthony Gardner, U.S. Ambassador to the European Union
Erik Jonnaert, Secretary general of ACEA, the European Trade Association of the Automobile Industry
Here are some pictures from the event, which took place in the Maison de l’Automobile/Huis van de Automobiel in Brussels.
Thank you to all our Club members who came out to our annual Columbia Connects evening in the beautiful Dominican Hotel in downtown Brussels! We were very happy to meet new members and catch up with old friends!
Check out some of our event photos. If you have any that you'd like to share, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Columbia Connects 2013
Every fall, over fifty alumni clubs connect with local alumni and form a global network of connected Columbians in the annual initiative, started six years ago. Enjoy these photos from past Columbia Connects (formerly Worldwide Networking) and look for a Columbia Connection near you this fall.
At the 25th annual Hong Kong Ivy Ball, Columbia alumni won first place in the School Song Competition with this mashup of the school song and several contemporary pop hits. (Video credit to Lui Siu Fai)
