ISWIB is an international educational and cultural festival that takes place in Belgrade, Serbia. During this one week, participants are involved in various workshops dealing with the imminent problems of today’s world using different methods such as: biotech, musicals, yoga, pictures, discussion, IT etc. It is a place of sharing ideas and beliefs with counterparts from all around the world in an environment free of prejudices, violence, xenophobia and hate speech.

The theme of this year’s ISWIB is: Youth strikes back!
The most interesting activity for young professionals interested in agriculture will be the following workshops:
Breathe Me In which uses the method of landscape architecture and deals with the issue of green urban spaces.
Environment Is Us which uses the method of biohacking: the participants will inspect the interactions between people, nature and environment, by measuring the quality of air, water and a few other elements, using measuring sensors made by participants and moderators.
Other interesting workshops will tackle issues of gender, social norms, human rights, yoga etc.
