Participate in an international seminar on antimilitarist education and protest in Kosovo!

26th April 2022

We are looking for 2 participants (people living in Switzerland) for the International Training «Methods against war», which will take place in Mitrovica (Kosovo) from 1-6 June!

*To participate in the international seminars or trainings, you only need to become a member of SCI Switzerland. The travel costs, your participation fee, food and accommodation are covered by SCI Switzerland and the Movetia Foundation.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

No war anywhere! More than ever, we need to stand up against the atrocities, the reality and the threat of warfare, nuclear weapons, arms industries and military conscription. We need to stand in solidarity with those who are directly affected by the violence resulting from them. And we need to become many more who are dedicated to peace, disarmament and diplomacy!

Let’s exchange and develop methods for antimilitarism! This seminar works like a „tool fair“. This means that most of the seminar will be a methods exchange: Participants bring methods for education and protest that they use in their antimilitarist activism and introduce them to the rest of the group. We then reflect on each method and try to find ways how we can use them in our work with volunteers and young people, be it in street protests, school workshops, trainings or volunteering camps.

Networking between antimilitarists around Europe and Southwest Asia. This seminar involves 29 participants, representing 21 organisations and living in 17 countries (Austria, Cyprus, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, UK). We want to use this space to bring together organisations from different antimilitarist and peace networks such as SCI, War Resisters International (WRI), International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) and others.

“Methods Against War” is part of a bigger collaboration between GAIA Kosovo and SCI Austria.
