The iWeek is designed to give participants tools and experiential knowledge on how to deal with and address major societal and environmental challenges of our time. It is an i(nteractive) Week with workshops and spaces to exchange, allowing you to explore the principle of inner sustainability: how do you relate to others, yourself, and nature?
This year, it took place from the 4th to the 10th of July. As the previous year, this year too the iWeek was successfully adapted to the Covid-19 measures. While the pandemic upholds norms of isolation and social distancing, at iWeek we acknowledge and emphasizee the importance and relevance of finding ways to remain feeling connected to the world and fostering those connections.
"When I think back on the iWeek, I remember the freedom of spending an entire week in the open air. I remember the joy of being without a phone - mine stayed at home. I remember the sensation of the soft forest ground under my naked feet, the pine needles stroking my arm, the sound of a crackling fire already in the morning and the smell of moss in the rain.iWeek was going into the forest with nothing and returning with a story.It was a circle full of beaming faces , listening and sharing what they had encountered, on evenings that did not want to end."
