Attention! The event is covered by the hygiene regulations of the Ilmenau University of Technology. The 3G rule applies. In view of the SARS-CoV-2 containment measures, participants of the event must be vaccinated, recovered or officially tested (antigen or PCR).

"How better to say "Welcome to Thuringia" than with a proper Thuringian barbecue? The ISWI e.V. and the bi-Club together with the whole ILSC e.V. want to enjoy the last summer sun with you and introduce themselves.

Here you will have the opportunity to meet your first fellow students even before you are divided into seminar groups.

With music from the hsf student radio as well as drinks and Thuringian specialties from the grill we would like to spend a comfortable evening with you on the Gustav-Kirchhoff-Platz between Humboldtbau and Newtonbau. All friends of meatless barbecueing are also remembered.

We are looking forward to you!


What is ISWI?

The "Initiative Solidarische Welt Ilmenau e.V.", or ISWI for short, is an association founded by students that works for peace, international understanding, international convictions and tolerance.

The largest project of the ISWI e.V. is the "International Student Week in Ilmenau", also abbreviated as ISWI. Every two years, several hundred students from all over the world come to Ilmenau for ten days to take part in Germany's largest international student meeting. Here the participants discuss current topics of world politics, look for solutions and find new friends at the various cultural events, such as open-air concerts, film screenings and much more.

The last ISWI took place online in June and July of this year. Under the motto "Our Future, Our Responsibility - There is no Plan(et) B!" participants discussed various aspects of Climate change, Environmental Conservation and Sustainability. In non-pandemic times, 300-400 participants from up to 80 countries travel to Ilmenau to attend ISWI.

In addition to the ISWI, the ISWI organizes many small projects during the semester, such as the "Kitchen Run", "Professors read Christmas fairy tales", "Wanderlust Lectures", as well as various readings and lectures.

For volunteers there are always many possibilities to participate in the projects of the ISWI e.V., even new (crazy) ideas are welcome!
