Challenges Of Our Time - Seeking For A Global Consciousness By Facing Myself?

THEME

„Challenges Of Our Time – Seeking For A Global Consciousness By Facing Myself“ is the topic for the International Students’ Conference in which we wish to form a picture of how we young people imagine the world of tomorrow –

To list the challenges of our time we simply have to turn on the news:

All around the globe right-wing populism, xenophobia and homophobia are on the rise again, setting at risk our liberal democratic principles.

The social conflicts caused by the widening gap between rich and poor, high CO2 emissions and deforestation leading to global warming are threatening the future of mankind and all other species.

But what sustainable alternatives are there?

How am I connected as an individual to these challenges? From which personal standpoint do I judge the events and conditions of my time?

How do I relate to what is happening on another continent?

How can my consciousness extend beyond my immediate environment and what must my relationship to myself be in this process?

Does my consciousness for global events and challenges not originate entirely within myself?

And how can I, as a young person, become the change I want to see in the world?

How can I stand for my values or start my own initiative?

Let us join in conversation about the world of tomorrow as shaped by ourselves!

Let us create the world we want to live in through our participation and action!

To this purpose we offer a platform of lectures, conversations, workshops, artistic events, theatre, eurythmy and musical performances.

EVENT

Our conference is a five-day event being supported by various foundations, with an audience of about 500 students from all around the world.

Our goal is to bring together young people from around the world, to give them a platform for a discourse on the challenges of our time and their solutions, on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.

To this purpose we offer a platform of lectures, conversations, workshops, artistic events, theatre, eurythmy and musical performances.

WHO CAN REGISTER?

We invite students students from all countries, backgrounds, ethnicities and schools who are in grade 10 to 13 – and normally between the age of 16 and 19 years –to attend our conference.

DISCLAIMER:

We experienced the last weeks a really high demand of students who want to attend but are not between the age of 16 and 19. Therefore, we decided to open our conference conditionally for people that are under the age of 16 and over the age of 19 years old.

WHAT IS THE CONDITION? 

If you are not in the age range between 16 and 19 years, you can send us a motivation letter (1 page) in which you explain us your motivation to attend the ISC. After we have reviewed your motivation letter, we will get back to you the next days. Please send us your motivation letter as soon as possible via email 🙂

WHO IS ORGANIZING? 

The International Students Conference stands in a long tradition of conferences but is unique in itself: Since decades the Youth Section at the Goetheanum in Switzerland has organized international students meetings every two years – the International Students Conference is one of them.

The organization team for the International Students Conference 2017 was formed out of a cooperation of the Youth Section at the Goetheanum, the National Students Representatives of German Waldorf Schools “WaldorfSV” and a group of Swiss pupils who also showed great initiative.
