Action for Peace #18

What was it about?

SCI participated again in the local edition of this 22-year-old national Festival des Solidarités, at the Maison Pour Tous Champfleury, in Avignon, which gathers people to promote solidarity with others and tries to encourage actions for defending human rights. In 2019 children and young people were in the highlight, as it was the 30th anniversary of the International Convention for Children’s Rights.

The Festival took place from 16th till 30th of November. The branch of SCI in France took part in the opening session on 16th with an information stall and a short presentation of SCI to the public. SCI also took part in the closing evening party on 30th with the presentation of the new exhibition “100 years Volunteers”, an information stall and a workshop on voluntary work. Over a hundred people took part in both events.

There was a important coverage by the local media this year and support again from the Town Council of Avignon.
