June 2016

Summer is here, holiday time is coming soon but volunteering never stops! But first, you may have noticed some changes to this edition of our newsletter... Yep, we’ve changed our name! From June onwards you will be receiving the SCI E-zine and it will be delivered to your inbox once a month, so as you can stay updated on all the happenings in the SCI world! The content of our newsletter has changed a bit too, with more news from our branches and working groups, updates from our projects and those we are partners of and the latest from our current campaign and programme. Of course we will continue with our good old “From the Archives” section! So what about the volunteer stories? They will still be here but mostly on our fresh new “Voices of Volunteers” blog, (we love the name so we kept it for the blog!) We hope you like it! We do! Ready?
Make a deep jump and dive in our news… Enjoy!

Join a ClimateForPeace workcamp


When searching for a workcamp that’s perfect for you, among many specific topics, you can also select “Climate for Peace”. Any workcamp can get this label, as long as organizers agree to follow certain criteria explained in Climate for Peace workcamp guidelines. Find all the details here.

“Don't leave your room, don't make a mistake”


There’s this poem by Joseph Brodsky – “Don’t leave your room, don’t make a mistake”. I guess this should become an anthem for all international volunteers, because in a way it mocks everyone who hasn’t done it yet and, even more, doesn’t understand or doesn’t accept people who are actively involved in it.” Read the whole story of the volunteer.

Final seminar- Glovola Project


The Final seminar of the Erasmus+ KA2 project “GLOVOLA: Global Volunteer Action” took place at the Advanced Volunteer University in Barcelona, Spain, from the 17th to the 22nd of June, which focused on a complete Evaluation of this Global project successfully carried out by SCI for the past year and half.

Building Bridges Training Course


SCI’s Building Bridges training on working with asylum seekers and refugees took place from 11th to 17th June 2016 in the centre Les Pérouses, in Satigny (Geneva). The training brought together activists and volunteers from all around Europe who are interested in the theme of migration, asylum seekers and refugees, and aimed at sharing knowledge and skills in order for them to improve their projects or start new ones. Details here.

Three generations of volunteering in SCI


Mariann Midbøe from Norway participated a camp in Finland two years ago, and that’s when we found out about her family’s interesting history with Service Civil International. We want to share this inspiring story as a part to celebrate our movement’s long history and to commemorate the 70 years of KVT’s workcamps! Read the whole story in our new blog.

Volunteering in Bhaktapur, Nepal


“First of all lets me say that I had a wonderful time working as a volunteer in Nepal. The local SCI members, and the Nepalese people for that matter, are some of the friendliest people you’ll have the pleasure to meet. I’m happy I chose to go to Nepal for my workcamp. It will be a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. Read the rest of the story.

From the Archives


First discussions on how SCI should celebrate the centenary of the first ever international voluntary peace service near Verdun in 1920 have just started – and the second edition of the probably one and only monography on the SCI movement’s history is not less than half a century old. The ideal of peace combined with two tools used for the construction of paths and other practical work. Read the whole article.
