After the held successful event on the first talk show, Impactful Friday was back with another interesting topic and special speakers. We collaborated with Kemitraan Negara Berkembang (KNB) students who have different background country and specialization. The second talk show titled Impactful Friday: “Good News from Around the World: Dive Deeper into Successful ITS International Students’ Home countries SDGs Stories!” was held on 24 July 2020 via a zoom platform.

We featured with three inspiring speakers, Emosi Delai Raqisia from Fiji Island (South Pacific), Eric Marcos Hughes Arrocha from Panama, and Eva Felantsoa Ralantoarinaivo from Madagaskar to share about SDGs good news in their home countries. The talk show was more fun as hosted by Laura Laura Kerrenhapukh Yolla, ITS Global Engagement Volunteer. The talk show was started at 3 pm and ended at 5 pm. There were three main topics delivered by the speakers, implementation SDGs in the speaker home countries, implementation SDGs during COVID-19, and experiences the speakers related to implementing SDGs.

The talk show was opened with a welcome speech delivered by Associate Professor Maria Anityasari Ph. D. as Director of ITS Global Engagement, followed by introducing the speakers, forwarded to topic explaining by each speaker. Emosi shared about what his country has done on SDGs point 4: Quality Education whereas Eric explained more about SDGs point 5 and 9: Gender Equality and Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure. Last, Eva told about SDGs points 1 and 2: No Poverty and Zero Hunger. The next session was Question and Answer. The participants may ask the question through slido, and the moderator would read the question, and then the speaker could answer the question mentioned.

After a fascinating discussion, we invited the participants to do a fun game related to the SDGs topic of the talk show. We gained many participants from ITS and other universities, in the range of 88 to 97 participants. The enthusiast of the participants during the talk show was so high because they followed every session so well. The committee also provided merchandise as a reward for the participants who achieved the highest score on Kahoot games, the best question, and both had submitted Impactful Friday Quiz and joined the talk show.

Impactful Friday talk show ended by taking the pictures of the speakers and participants followed by closing speech from the moderator. We hope that the participants, especially ITS students can enrich their insight about SDGs so they can contribute the point of SDGs in real life. To anyone who cannot join or want to re-watch the talk show, we have recorded the talk show on ITS International Office youtube
