“We believe that education plays a fundamental role when striving for peace and development. Education is a human right. In our training courses, we use the Non Formal Education (NFE) method – meant to be participatory and accessible to everyone. Through dialogue and intercultural exchange, we can promote a critical understanding of the world and changes in our society.“
During our pre-departure training you will learn more about our volunteer engagement, the workcamps and long-term projects. Moreover, you will also get to know our values and goals. We deal with challenges in international workcamps or long-term projects and will offer you various workshops on topics such as interculturality, conflict resolution, non-violent communication, group dynamics, cultural prejudices/stereotypes, Global Justice, racism, post-colonialism, gender and safe spaces and much more. In addition, volunteers will report on their experience in the field, and will give you valuable tips.

PEACE IN PRACTICE
“Peace is a big concept. It has many layers and levels of understanding. Throughout this year and beyond, SCI hopes to broaden young people’s understanding of and engagement with peace, as something more than just ‘absence of war’. We want to show that peace is something which can be lived on a day-to-day basis”. (SCI International)
