"Lost laughter Workcamp" in Nepal



Laughter is the power of life! That's why SCI Nepal Panauti Branch is organizing a workcamp to bring the lost laughter back that was plucked by the Earthquake in 25th April 2015. Join the "Lost laughter Workcamp" from the 4th to the 14th of July and help the Nepalese community. More information and upcoming workcamps on SCI website section "Nepal Earthquake Updates".

Climate Heroes in Berlin



“At the beginning of each and every (cultural) exchange or new encounters with other people I ask myself: What do I bring for a start and what do I take with me in the end? By now I know: Afterwards I am never the same person as before and most of the time I do not want to be the same anyhow.” Ina Constien, a volunteer from SCI Germany, explains her experience in the Climate Change and Sustainability Seminar in Berlin.

Peace and SCI history in Folgaria



Last May, 25 participants coming from different countries gathered in Folgaria (Italy) to share experience and create new tools to be used within the Memory beyond Rethoric project. “My favorite part of the training was the workshop on nonviolent communication, because I think I can use it on my daily life very often.” Check out the last updates on the SCI #Memoric website and meet our multipliers!
