[unpad.ac.id, 10/6/2019] Ayesha Nadya Muna, anthropology Student of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of Universitas Padjadjaran, became one of the Indonesian delegates at the largest international level student meeting in the world, the “International Student Week in Ilmenau” (ISWI) at Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany, May 17-26.
ISWI was attended by more than 300 participants from 70 different countries. The activity was a student meeting on a global level, with the aim of forming a tolerant and open global society.
“ISWI opens itself as a conducive and effective place to discuss various global issues from a local perspective, namely the cultural point of view of each participant, and find solutions together. The exchange of information and culture has become a healthy menu for ISWI participants,” Ayesha said.
Following the theme “Tradition and Transition,” ISWI held a variety of activities, starting from a world culinary festival, panel discussions, to several self-development workshops.
Ayesha explained that there were two panel discussions held. The first discussion discussed about “Integration and Participation of Refugees and Migrants” with speakers from the Uganda Red Cross Society and Migration Hub Network.
The second discussion covered “Environmental Conservation in a Globalized World” with speakers from the Sri Lanka Youth Climate Action Network (SLYCAN) and University Vienna.
Ayesha herself participated in the discussion group on environmental conservation. This discussion discussed a number of environmental issues currently occurring in the world. In the discussion, Ayesha tried to express the solution to environmental problems through an anthropological perspective.
At the world culinary festival, Ayesha and other Indonesian delegates served a variety of traditional Indonesian culinary delights, such as dodol, kue gapit, rendang, jinten manis, serundeng, amplang, and abon.
Not to be left behind, the delegates also donned kebaya and batik clothing as Indonesian fashion symbols. During the festival, the Indonesian delegation performed the regional song “Yamko Rame Yamko.” *
