If you want to educate others, you yourself need to be educated. If you want to have any kind of influence on young people, you yourself need to stay young and continuously work on yourself.

The International Students Conference 2019 is going to be the third ISC organized by the Youth Section and WaldorfSV. It’s a biannual event traditionally held at Goetheanum.
The topic for #ISC19 is Courage. During day five-day conference we will listen to four keynote talks by international speakers.

 

About the the topic:

COURAGE

Is it courage that guides you or is it fear that forms your actions?

At this year’s conference we would like to come together to develop an understanding about when courage might be the solution for personal and societal issues.

How can we manage to let courage lead us throughout our lives?

And what is it that makes it so difficult?

Have we come to a point at which we need courage as a new basis in order to solve old, stagnant problems of personal and global kinds?

How do courage and fear influence our ideals and our political views?

How and why do fears arise? How can we work on breaking them down?

Many of us have grown up without firm values which religion or authoritarian education would provide.

Thus the question arises how we can find direction in our lives and what values we want to live with. 

So how can we manage not to look for direction in simple but often exclusive ideologies, but to let our free will guide us and to find values which embrace reality in its wholeness, complexity, and diversity?

Let us all together encourage ourselves  to create a change which enables us to live together in unconditional solidarity with values that are worth fighting for. 

Let us raise courage to break down old paradigms and to stand for our convictions.
