It's been a busy time for the Create a Climate for Peace Campaign since the last edition of Voices of Volunteers. A few of the highlights are: the Volunteer Coordinator Trainings in Rome and Nigeria, where participants were prepared to become campleaders of special Climate for Peace workcamps. We now also have Friday Updates as part of the campaign! Every Friday of every week SCI sends out a newsletter with information, articles and inspiration regarding Climate Justice and Peace. You can check out our photo albums from all the Create a Climate for Peace trainings and actions on our flickr account and learn more on the website.
Zaatari Camp, Jordan (2014)
By Elin Hofman
"In those couple of weeks I saw a group of boys becoming stars, not the stars we see on television, but stars with a mission: to help their peers. They acted, showed their joy, had sparkles in their eyes and spoke about their convincement to go to school."
The aftermath of the floods in Serbia, 2014
The people of the Balkans are uniting in their efforts to help each after the tragic floods that took place. Since the 20th of May we have been posting regular updates on our website with news from our branches in the Balkans as well as the all the support efforts from the SCI family. The latest update we would like to share with you, is our crowdfunding project which has just been launched! Volunteers’ center of Vojvodina, SCI's Serbian branch, will be organizing relief workcamps, in order to rebuild homes, but also to rebuild connections among people, and between people and nature. For this to happen they need our support. Together, we can make a difference.
