We are pleased to have an excellent guest for the event:

Jamison Ervin, Ph.D., Manager of the Global Programme on Nature for Development (Nature, Climate and Energy; Bureau for Policy and Programme Support) at the United Nations Development Programme

She will focus more on the aspect of Peace with Nature, given the growing interest in this area and the importance for SCI to find its space.

Discussions among the participants will follow.

 

The Vision Seminar

The Vision Seminar consists of a series of 4 online workshops and a final seminar on a new vision for SCI. The first event happened on 11 June on Zoom, discussing the question: “What does it mean to work for peace today, in the current context?”, and the second event on 9 July, asking “What is the way to achieve peace today?”
The third event will build up on the ideas generated in the first two workshops, but you don’t need to have participated in the first event to join – anyone is welcome!

The Vision Seminar process is open to everybody, to the oldest and youngest SCI activists, from East to West and from South to North, with some or a lot of experience, AND with a clear will to be part of the SCI new Vision of Peace and of SCI future! We are looking for enthusiastic participants who are interested in contributing to the discussion.

If you are enthusiastic about the whole process and ready to contribute, you are invited to the third workshop of the series – we look forward to meeting you there!
