The best thing about IstKon is, that this is not only one event which won’t happen again, but that IstKon will become a tradition. IstKon will become an institution, so new generations of students will have the possibility to also have such experiences

As a participant of IstKon, I can surely claim that this is one of the best projects I have ever participated in. There were 50 students from Istanbul and Konstanz who exchanged their knowledge, experience and culture. Although the project was mainly about politics in these two countries, we even learnt much more than that. We students learnt about different ways of doing presentations, being tolerant during discussions and how to make friends all around the world.

The best thing about IstKon is, that this is not only one event which won’t happen again, but that IstKon will become a tradition. IstKon will become an institution, so new generations of students will have the possibility to also have such experiences. Extracurricular activities and non-formal education are important for students as they help to learn new things which are not taught in University. This is exactly what IstKon is offering – providing new knowledge to students outside their classes and helping them to expand their horizons while learning about other countries and cultures. I will surely participate in the next IstKon event which will be held in Istanbul.

Lastly, I would like to thank all organizers of IstKon as they did a really good job. We will all do our best to keep IstKon alive and to make it better and bigger every time.
