What a day! The 1st of February – Rijeka as the European Capital of Culture and Brexit

Today is a very big day, not only for our city Rijeka but for the world as well.

Today was the opening ceremony of Rijeka as the European Capital of Culture and for today there is a “a rich full-day cultural and entertainment programme in Rijeka, involving a large number of organizers and participants, as well as the central ceremony in the evening, the Opera Industriale in the Rijeka Port“. The central opening ceremony took place in the Rijeka Port, a space that represents a strong point of identity for Rijeka.

About 60 cities such as Florence, Stockholm, Marseille, Liverpool, Helsinki, Athens, Luxembourg, Dublin etc. had already this title.

On the other side of Europe there is Brexit happening – The UK officially left the European Union, ending 47 years of membership, making this day, historically seen, as very important. “Most EU laws will continue to be in force – including the free movement of people – until the end of December, by which time the UK aims to have reached a permanent free trade agreement with the EU.”

Handover Meeting & New Year’s Seminar, Zagreb

Nakon novogodišnjih praznika počeli smo vrlo aktivno djelovati! Naime, 4. i 5. siječnja održao se tzv. Handover meeting, koji se održava na početku svake godine. Tada se sastaju stari i novi “službenici” udruge ISHA i na kojem, osim što stari prenose najbitnije informacije novim službenicima, raspravlja o najbitnijim točkama i o budućnosti udruge kroz predstojeću godinu. Budući da je naša članica Katja Nadine Passeri ove godine postala dio toga kruga, tako je i ona prisustvovala dvodnevnom sastanku u Zagrebu.

jjj

Nadalje, odmah nakon dvodnevnog sastanka, uslijedio je i Novogodišnji Seminar u Zagrebu koji je trajao od 6. do 12. siječnja. Naši članovi Katja Nadine Passeri i Dino Musić sudjelovali su kao Freelanceri, no sudjelovali su i na službenom Otvorenju Seminara, Dino je prisustvovao jednoj radionici, dok se Katja pridružila sudionicima na prekrasnom jednodnevnom izletu na Plitvička jezera. Sudjelovali smo i na Okruglom stolu, gdje smo imali čast poslušati i popričati s dr.sc. Tvrtkom Jakovinom.

Ovim putem se želimo zahvaliti ISHA-i Zagreb na gostoprimstvu, na volji za organiziranjem ovog Seminara te na divnom iskustvu!

Sretna Nova Godina!

undefined Dragi članovi ISHA-e,

Prvenstveno vam želimo čestitati Novu godinu i nadamo se da će nam predstojeća godina donijeti mnogo posebnih i uspješnih trenutaka, popunjeni ljubavlju.

Ova godina bila je doista vrlo teška, no izašli smo iz nje još jači! 🙂

S druge strane, sudjelovali smo na raznim, odličnim Seminarima poput onog u Beogradu, u Berlinu i u Budimpešti. Osim toga, ove godine nas čekaju još mnogobrojni Seminari na raznoraznim lokacijama. Za nekoliko dana posjetit ćemo Seminar u Zagrebu, od 30. ožujka do 5. travnja održat će se Seminar u Mostaru gdje će neki od nas sudjelovati kao sudionici radionice, dok će neki čak voditi jednu od radionica. Isto tako, ove godine nas čekaju i Seminar u Moskvi i Gentu.

I za kraj možemo vam najaviti da pripremamo nekoliko dobrih događaja u Rijeci, no o detaljima ćete biti pravovremeno obaviješteni! 😉

S puno ljubavlju,
vaša ISHA Rijeka

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Dear ISHA Family,

we wish you a happy New Year and we hope this year is going to show some very special and successful moments in our lives, filled with love.

This year was very tough for us, but we became stronger! 🙂

On the other hand, we were a part of some amazing Seminars like the one in Belgrade, Berlin and Budapest. We’re looking to attend some Seminars in 2020 as well! In few days we’re coming to the New Year’s Seminar in Zagreb, as Freelancers. From March the 30th until April the 5th there will be a Seminar in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, at which few of us will be attending as Participants or as Workshop leaders. But there are also Seminars in Moscow and Ghent waiting for all of us 😉

Last but not least, we’re planing some amazing and fun events in Rijeka, so stay tuned!

Lots of Love,
ISHA Rijeka

Hvala Marku Berberoviću, predsjedniku Studentskog zbora, koji nas je srdačno pozvao na kongres. 

Happy New Year!

ISHA wishes you all a happy New Year. This year is a big one for us. Our organisation is turning 30! There might be some fuzz about that in the following months so stay tuned. Also due to the recent changes in ISHAs structure today it is the first time that an official term starts on the 1st of January. The new officials, who start their work today, are a mix of many new and some well-known faces. We will try to make you better acquainted with them in the following weeks but for now let us rest from yesternights celebrations and gather our strength for a great year to come. https://isha-international.org/officials/

Merry Christmas! – Christmas Truce

Dear colleagues, dear friends, dear ISHA family,

let’s appreciate the time of Christmas that brings us peace, love and happiness. 🙂

What Christmas really brings is best shown by the so-called Christmas Truce (German: Weihnachtsfrieden; French: Trêve de Noël) in the early period of Wold War I (Christmas, 1914).

Starting on Christmas Eve, many German and British troops sang Christmas carols to each other across the lines, and at certain points the Allied soldiers even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing. 

At the first light of dawn on Christmas Day, some German soldiers emerged from their trenches and approached the Allied lines across no-man’s-land, calling out “Merry Christmas” in their enemies’ native tongues. At first, the Allied soldiers feared it was a trick, but seeing the Germans unarmed they climbed out of their trenches and shook hands with the enemy soldiers. The men exchanged presents of cigarettes and plum puddings and sang carols and songs. There was even a documented case of soldiers from opposing sides playing a good-natured game of soccer. 

Some soldiers used this short-lived ceasefire for a more somber task: the retrieval of the bodies of fellow combatants who had fallen within the no-man’s land between the lines. The so-called Christmas Truce of 1914 came only five months after the outbreak of war in Europe and was one of the last examples of the outdated notion of chivalry between enemies in warfare. 

It was never repeated—future attempts at holiday ceasefires were quashed by officers’ threats of disciplinary action—but it served as heartening proof, however brief, that beneath the brutal clash of weapons, the soldiers’ essential humanity endured.

So, dear you, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! Share love & peace. ❤️🎁🎄
