Action for Peace #16
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
For the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the movement, SCI France organises a travelling workcamp: “The Peace Caravan” (“La Caravane de la Paix”), which will travel the roads of France for 14 days. In total autonomy with a van, a group of international volunteers will participate in 3 short workcamps with our local partners located in different places in France: Paris, central Brittany and Lille. In between, volunteers will have the opportunity to stop and visit well-known and lesser-known tourist sites. Free as a bird!
- The first of the 3 workcamps takes place in the Paris region, on a barge that belonged to SCI France 30 years ago, from June 27 to July 6. They will discover how life is like on a barge and will help with the renovation of the windows and the exterior painting. In addition, they will be asked to organize events on the barge, such as a cruise and open doors. They will also lead workshops to create educational tools on different topics: water, peace and climate change.
- On the morning of July 6, the volunteers will head to central Brittany, to meet with the locals and visit emblematic places of peace.
- On the 9th of July, they will go to Lille to participate in the organisation of the SCI General Assembly, where they will also have the honour to participate in the meetings and workshops.
During this traveling workcamp, volunteers will be traveling in a van for joining the three different workcamps and have the opportunity to discover French regional cultures. The idea is to experience diversity and promote peace, sharing, and accepting our differences.
