Service Civil International (SCI) unequivocally condemns the terrorist attacks that took place on August 17 2017 in Barcelona on the Ramblas and in Cambrils. We express our deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones and send strength to all those feeling the effects of the attacks. Now more than ever it is important to turn away from hate, terror and xenophobia and ensure that we come together to offer support and strength. SCI stands against violence and hopes that through a culture of peace these types of events will not occur again.

SCI Catalonia has released a statement on the 18th of August condemning the attacks. Please read the statement below.

 

The Peers to Peace Learning Seminar took place in Penang, Malaysia from 13-20 July, 2017, bringing together 26 participants from SCI branches, networks and members of the IEC. A big thank you to all participants, organizers and volunteers that made this Learning Seminar a success.

CCIVS is organizing “Leadership from Inside-out”, a training course  about leadership for trainers, facilitators, youth workers and youth leaders who are actively working with international and intercultural groups.

From 20th until 25th of June SAVA WG and Velebit Association of Kuterevo organized a joined Training for Camp Coordinators in the Bear Refuge Kuterevo, gathering 20 young people who wanted to learn more about coordinating workcamps but also leading groups in other forms of group activities. What were then future camp coordinators were not only volunteers active in different SAVA organizations, but also EVS volunteers who are doing their short-term service in VAK – and who have the privilege of spending more than 6 days at this amazing place (which the rest of us envied them greatly)!
