two goals with six main objectives. This year, after a two-year exploration of SCI’s priorities and vision for the future, the movement finalised and accepted a Strategic Plan for 2020-2023.

2020 Campaign

SCI was founded in 1920 and some activities to celebrate its 100th year of existence, as well as the 100 years of International Voluntary Service, started in 2019. SCI has several activities planned to honor and reflect on our history as well as the current state of International Voluntary Service.

What does the year 2020 mean to you?

I haven’t been involved in SCI for long, nevertheless it became my second home. I learned from the past, from people, who dedicated their life to SCI. I admire them and it always gives me a big motivation to do something similar for the world, not only for me and my neighbour. At the same time 2020 means reflection to me: where do we go as movement? Learn from the past and develop a bright view for the future. What is that view? In my opinion a big(ger) network which brings peace in every corner of the world with qualitative projects.

Publications

Publications are an excellent tool to disseminate information and spread good practices beyond the participants in trainings and projects. Usually, we try to do translations in different languages to reach more groups. During 2019, we published some toolkits and an historical book:
