We organise lectures and symposia on Monday nights and host conferences dealing with international topics, such as politics, world religions, environmental issues, terrorism, economics, development aid and human rights. Besides these weekly lectures or symposia we have our yearly Diplomats Dinner and Dies Natalis Conference.
After the weekly lectures on Monday, we have drinks or a party organised by a committee, dispuut or the Board. Other social events include the SIB introduction camp, SIB On Stage, Galant Gala and the parties on (international) trips.
The structure of the SIB consists of a Board, committees, project groups and disputen. The Board is responsible for the day-to-day management of the SIB and is supported by committees and project groups. Committees and project groups are bodies that have a specific task within the SIB, for example organising parties, lectures, conferences or our big SIB Trip.
During each trip, we visit Institutions such as embassies, ministries, NGOs or for example the NATO or the OECD. A few examples of our trips are the Hitchhiking Contest or the big trip. This Hitchhike Competition is a long weekend in April where we hitchhike to a city in Europe. The grand finale is our big Trip, a packed 10-day trip to at least one far away country.
