ISWiB stands for International Student Week in Belgrade. It is an international educational and cultural festival that takes place in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, a.k.a the city that never sleeps. During one week in July you will be provided with the opportunity not just to be introduced to Belgrade and Serbian culture, but to participate in various workshops dealing with the eminent problems of today’s world society using different methods such as: biotechna, musical, yoga, photo, discussion, IT etc. Share your ideas and beliefs with your counterparts from all around the world in an environment free of prejudices, violence, xenophobia and hate speech. Get in touch with outstanding professionals in diverse fields and use gained experience in improving your own local society or for starting up your own projects!

We especially encourage young people with disabilities who come from Serbia, as well as members of other vulnerable groups, to sign up and participate.
