Words about Deeds

100 years anniversary publication

WHY THIS BOOK?

In 2020 it will be one hundred years since – on Pierre Ceresole’s initiative – a few volunteers had begun an international service for peace and reconstruction. 100 years of Service Civil International are a reason to celebrate, to look forward but also to look back upon our long history of international voluntary service for peace. This is the purpose of this book on the history of SCI!

WHAT WILL I FIND?

The present publication is the result of the work of an international team of volunteers – SCI style! Different articles present important steps and milestones, interesting and exemplary projects and workcamps as well as original sources and portraits of activists from the first 100 years of SCI.

The book is published by the International Secretariat in Antwerp in close collaboration with SCI’s International Archives in Switzerland.
