SCI Hellas, as coordinating organization, along with SCI Catalunya, SCI Italy, and OWA Poland, as partner organizations, are happy to announce the implementation of three study camps on the impact international volunteering has had throughout the years. The project is called “Volunteering vs Violence” and aims to give the participants all the tools necessary to understand the relevance of international volunteering, especially in times of conflict or change. Given the various locations, each camp will have different activities and will focus on a different time frame: from 1920 to 1945 for Catalunya, 1945-1989 for Italy, and 1989-nowadays for Poland. After the implementation of the study camps, a final conference will be held in Athens in March 2019 to present, share, and discuss the results of the project.

Our study camp will concentrate on 3 main actions:

Start: volunteers experiences and stories
● The idea is to speak about building a climate for peace on base of everyday communication with people and on participation in workcamps or other voluntary projects. We would like to use rules of Non-violent Communication to answer questions like: what supports peace (which actions, words, attitudes) and how it corresponds to SCI values.
● We also would like to go from an individual experience (biographical approach) to general conclusions about the subject of SCI/workcamps voluntary specification and their contribution to peace building. We wish to discuss system of values that is close to SCI
volunteers and motivate us to be in the movement (us as younger and older volunteers and as such a different people). In this part we wish to answer question: what does connect us? These will also admission to interviews with the most experiences volunteers – people who started the Polish branch.
● We will have a chance a to look into SCI Poland archives (1990-today) as well as we will meet experienced volunteers. We believe everyone has something to say, something what is worth for others to hear.
● AND we are going to celebrate the New Year Eve together – we have some nice surprises for you
