Del 14 al 21 de juliol tindrà lloc a Nürnberg (Alemanya) el primer seminari del projecte MOVE, sobre sostenibilitat ambiental i voluntariat internacional
Background of the project
International Peace and voluntary work lives from the fruitful getting together and cultural exchange of people from different regions and backgrounds. Regular meetings, trainings, seminars and workcamps where people can exchange experiences and ideas form the basis for the peace work of SCI (Service Civil International). As a consequence of this need for exchange comes a higher need for traveling and transportation. At the moment, many of the travel distances are done by plane, which has high ecological impacts leading to ecological devastation, climate change and increased social inequality.
In this project, we want to look at how much and what kind of mobility is necessary and possible in order to do international peace and voluntary work successfully. Following this, we want to develop ideas on how mobility in an international – and especially in a European context – can be made socially and ecologically more sustainable. The project will be accompanied by the following questions: What are the ecological and social impacts of global mobility? What is our role as individuals and as part of European and international civil society in this context? How widely can we engage with these issues and change our behaviour and structures? What is possible for us as organisations in a broader context with current structural inequality and non-sustainable mobility?
