ISWinT (International Student Week in Timisoara) is an international festival that gathers participants from all over the world each year since 1994. The purpose of this festival is to give the students from different countries the opportunity to communicate freely, to express their opinions in a productive manner, while enjoying a taste of our local culture. Each edition’s theme was selected in order to show the students’ concerns towards the present and the future:
It’s been 21 amazing years. Each with it’s own identity, theme. Other than that, looking back, we’ve seen that there is a constant need for evolving. Not just the festival, but each organiser involved in it.
ISWinT has reached the beautiful age of 22 years. Given the conditions that school can be a limited environment and the virtual scene too vast and filled with distractions for concentrating on our purpose, ISWinT is the perfect place to make a change. We wish to help everyone broaden their horizon. Thus, this year’s theme is focused on the idea of individual improvement: “Develop yourself: Design the future”.
In a world that oscillates between following some patterns and excessiveness in avoiding mediocrity, it’s getting harder to have the courage to focus and your own conceptions. Accomplishing to overcome these templates is a first step in personal development, needed not only for the individual but also for the society that lacks leaders with an overview.
Thus, we want to change the way things are done, especially in terms of individual identity. This change must come from each one of us and if we want to evolve as a group we first have to invest in our own development.
