In August 2020 KU launched the Community Webinar Series, a string of educational webinars designed to teach and inform the general public about a variety of beneficial topics, ranging from lessons on the coronavirus to lessons on how to better understand your personality, build leadership skills, create a sustainable lifestyle, and many more.

The series is targeted towards everyone – from high school and university students, to parents, professionals and anyone in between who is interested in broadening their skillset and knowledge. The seminars were offered free of charge to the local and international community of learners as an extension of our active commitment to exchanging knowledge and resources in the spirit of collaboration to promote a happier, more engaged community, and a more sustainable world.
