In these days a new EVS volunteer arrived at the SCI International Secretariat in Antwerp, Sky from Hong Kong. She will be supporting the activities of Peers to Peace, the SCI project that involves many SCI branches – and not only - around the world. We are glad to introduce Sky to all of you with this interview.

 

The project Go visual! – Creative education about migration (lasting from June to November 2016) is a part of the SCI Building Bridges Campaign on refugees, and in line with the current developments in Europe regarding migration. The project leader is One World Association, the Polish branch of SCI and in these days they approved the output of the training course: an electronic publication with a set of 51 icons – simplified drawings – that allow to visualise in a few seconds concepts like: refugee, persecution, migration, discrimination, support, integration, etc. The icons are easy to redraw and need no artistic skills – literally everyone can copy them!
