Kindly allow me to introduce to you the students’ association Greifswald International Students Festival (GrIStuF) e.V. from Greifswald, Germany. A student-run, non-profit NGO, which aims to enrich the city’s cultural diversity and fosters intercultural tolerance and understanding. Our biggest (and name-giving) project is the International Students Festival.
The 10th edition of Greifswald International Student Festival will be held from the 5th to the 13th of June 2020 under the motto “From Ego to Echo – creating ideas for collective change”, during which, 150 students from all over the world will be given the platform to discuss and exchange ideas on the festival’s topic.
The workshops and cultural events offered during the festival will put in focus the the importance of activism and assess the impact each of us has on the global society. Our aim is to encourage the participants to actively engage and take part in sharing ideas and inspiring each other, to stand up for what they believe in.
We would like to invite the students of your university to come to Greifswald and to exchange their perspectives with students from other nations, cultures and religions. To inform as many students as possible about this great opportunity, we kindly ask you to forward this invitation by your means available. May it be your university‘s web- or Facebook-page, in print or conversation. A high-resolution version of the poster is available on our website and can be printed and put up at highly-frequented spots at your university.
The application phase has started on the 1st of November and will end on the 15th of December, 2019. Further detailed information about the festival and its programme, as well as a FAQ-section on the application process can be found on our website www.students-festival.de.
If you have further question, please do not hesitate to contact me. Furthermore, if you feel like you‘re not the right person to speak to in regard of our festival, we highly appreciate a short reply or a forwarding to your colleagues.
We are looking forward to welcome students of your university to the next international students festival in Greifswald!
