The project iZ in Action organizes various sporty or nature connected activities here in Trier. International students and local students can meet in an exciting and down-to-earth atmosphere.
This summer semester we want to go on bike and hike tours and organize soccer and beach volleyball games. In winter we go ice skating, sledding or indoor climbing.
Through this project we want to enhance the intercultural exchange between international students and students of the University of Trier. Your ideas of what else to do are always welcome.
On Friday, the 1 of July, a joint beachvolleyball tournament from iZ in Action, Buddy Program and Beyond Broders took place in Trier. You can find a short report on our event page and there will be pictures on Facebook coming soon.
This summer, our canoe tour led us to the beautiful Saarland! We were not frightened by the inconsistant weather forecast and started our way to Merzig on Sunday. After a detailed briefing, the boats were lowered to the water. In a chill atmosphere, we paddled 14 km the way down the river in direction of Saarschleife, the landmark of Saarland. Shortly before a storm catched us, we safely reached our goal: Mettlach. We really had a beautiful time with you and we're looking forward to a reunion on the next event! Pictures will be as usual on Facebook.
Again, we did a hiking tour to Burg Eltz in this semester. Despite the bad weather forecast, 40 motivated hiking friends started the journey. The April borught us hail and rain, but a lot of sunshine too. Next to blooming fields of rape, our way went on to Burg Eltz. We are already looking forward to the next hiking trip with you. You find pictures here on Facebook!
On Sunday, the 24 of January, 24 highly motivated and ready-for-anything hikers embarked on a trip to the Border Triangle to explore the countryside and the woods leading them through France, Luxembourg, and Germany. During the trip it became delightfully obvious how easy it is for us to cross borders without any obstacles.
Without any doubt, it was a great way to start the new year while at the same time concluding our winter term. We are hoping to see you back IN ACTION with us next semester!
In the meantime, you can check out some impressions of our trip on our Facebook page!

We had a bowling evening for 2 hours (18-20 p.m.) with a lot of fun, intercultural exchange and many strikes! We ended the evening in a relaxed atmosphere at the christmas market. It was good to have you all there, and we are looking forward to new activities in the new year.
