About the theme:
What does the word value mean to you? Can you define it in your own words? What are the thoughts and images that come to your mind? Everyone’s values are different and they reflect what is important to us in life. Values define our culture, beliefs and who we are as a person. In line with the theme, we want to showcase life stories from ordinary people that are diverse, unusual, daring, and unknown.

Q: What type of stories can I tell/ hear?
A: We want people to share true stories about their lives – and every event has a different theme but the most important thing is it must be a first-person true story. This is NOT an event for debates, political speeches, philosophical musings and religious sermons. We also do not tolerate offensive, hateful and objectifying talks.

Q: I have a really good story to share which is relevant to this theme.
A: Great! Please send it to hon@isac-eu.org with a short description of your story. If there’s enough time, we’ll give you 7min to tell your story.

Q: Are the stories in English?
A: Yes!

Q: Can I come and just listen to others’ stories?
A: Yes, definitely!
