2020 finally kicked off with the SCI-Reunion in Belgium over the weekend from 24.5.-26.5.
Over 130 active and inactive SCI members took the opportunity to travel from all over the world to a small municipality called Merelbeke not far from Gent. Here, in a lovely youth hostel everyone gathered to share stories, exchange thoughts and talk about the future of SCI.

The weekend started with a little speed dating to get everyone mingling and maybe getting to know people that never met before. After that there was a lot of free time with a nice offer of activities like round table discussions, book presentations, sport tournaments, and many more. As this Reunion was the start of the official 2020 campaign (SCI 100 years celebration), there were also informative presentations on what 2020 is and what will happen around it.

In general you can say that it was a unique event with a lot of SCI legends moving SCI forward since decades. The oldest participants were over 80 years old and their stories were more than interesting they inspired the whole crowd.

Last but not least it`s also mentionable that we had a special food provider. The caterer “WOW foods” founded by a VIA Belgium member is only using ingredients which are graded as unsaleable and would normally be thrown away. It was delicious!
