In 2020, workcamps are celebrating their 100th anniversary! This year is then very special and it provides a good opportunity to increase 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 is cooperating 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. All Alliance members are invited to contribute to the Action Plan.
The Action Plan aims are 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.
