100th Anniversary of International Voluntary Service

100th anniversary logo

In 2020, workcamps celebrated their 100th anniversary! The year 2020 was quite special and was definitely not the anniversary the IVS movement had imagined. Still, the anniversary was a good opportunity to increase the visibility of workcamps and IVS, shedding light on our roots and values: intercultural education, understanding and peace through voluntary service intercultural understanding, peace, active citizenship, social inclusion, respect of human rights, gender equality, youth mobility, sustainability, recognition of non-formal education.

The Alliance cooperated with its sister networks (CCIVS, SCI, NVDA…) to celebrate the IVS movement at best! To do so, Alliance General Assembly 2019, adopted a common 100th anniversary Action Plan, coordinated by INEX-SDA, Lunaria, IBG, CBB, YRS-VSS, SCI France, and our External Relations Committee.

The Action Plan aimed at collecting stories of volunteers, IVS organisations and local communities hosting workcamps; collecting pictures and videos on IVS; spreading articles about the anniversary and many other initiatives.

At this link you can read one article produced, written by Alicia of IBG Germany!

Enjoy the reading!
