SCI has been organising volunteering for peace projects for a century. This experience is something that we can be proud of, however there is still work to be done. We wish to show the impact volunteering projects have on society and build capacity on how to put SCI values in practice on a global, local and personal level.
A key goal of this Strategic Plan is to contribute to building a more peaceful world through organising high quality and conscientious peace projects. To achieve this, we intend to improve the sustainability of SCI on all levels. Through this Strategic Plan, SCI will contribute to a society which is more open-minded, aware and responsible for its own behavior and actions. One that is able to handle conflicts in a peaceful way, as well as be empowered to take ownership and active involvement in bringing a positive change and promote peace on a local and international level.
Peace is not a static situation – working for peace is a continuous process.
The current Strategic Plan gives the Movement a direction for the years 2020-2023.
The Strategic Plan identifies the main strategic goals and objectives of the Movement: two goals and six objectives to focus on during the years 2020 to 2023.
Goal 1: Reassert the value of volunteering for peace
To re-emphasize the connection between volunteering and peace
SCI is proud of its 100 years of experience promoting a culture of peace through organising international volunteering projects. Cross-border volunteering not only promotes civic engagement but also fosters better intercultural understanding. It strengthens respect for the environment, society and ourselves, thereby creating more empowerment and cooperation. It’s important to emphasize this connection.
