The International Student Week in Belgrade (ISWiB) is a student festival which has traditionally been held every year since 2006 in the city of Belgrade, Serbia. The Festival is open for students from all over the world. Every year, ISWiB gathers over 200 young people, including participants, moderators and volunteers. The idea of the festival is to bind young people through work in several different workshops created so that every workshop covers a significant field of the society we live in . Through workshops, close communication and cooperation, interactive lectures and various open activities, students will be able to gain new knowledge and exchange ideas. They will also have an opportunity to establish professional contacts with eminent professors and professionals from different sectors and develop and create new projects by themselves.
The Festival has traditionally been organized by association World Youth Wave.
A short ISWiB history
The association World Youth Wave has so far successfully organized ten ISWiBs. Every ISWiB had its own theme and story:
ISWiB is a meeting platform for young people with different cultural backgrounds. It is a place where young people get to know each other, establish new friendships and discuss various topics, from different points of view.
From 2016 ISWiB decided to participate with sensitive groups so we can improve our festival. Starting from 2017 ISWiB is inclusive festival.
Our goal is to establish international cooperation and contacts by creating a healthy working environment and enabling stronger bonds among domestic and foreign students. By promoting the idea of the “citizen of Europe” and “citizen of the World”, we insist on embracing intercultural and European values and bringing them to a global level of mutual respect and understanding.
