NUI Galway at the Volvo Ocean Race

NUI Galway is setting sail for the 2012 Volvo Ocean Race, the largest sporting event to hit Ireland this year. The University will be the exclusive education partner for the Volunteer Programme for the Galway leg of the race. The Volunteering Programme, called ‘Come on Board’, will see the University join forces with ‘Let’s Do It Global’, the organisers of the Galway final leg of the race, to recruit 1,200 volunteers to run the nine-day festival.

NUI Galway  even has its own pavilion down in the Global Village section of the festival, packed with exciting and interactive activities for visitors.  With everything from a ‘3D View of the Universe’ to marine touch tanks and much more, there is something for the whole family to enjoy! So get involved and visit one of our 5 interactive zones:
