A journey with the peace caravan
Descrizione: En 2020, le SCI fêtait ces 100 ans. Pour les fêter, le Service Civil International organise un chantier itinérant « La Caravane de la Paix » qui sillonnera les routes de France en début juillet 2020. Pendant 10 jours, un groupe de volontaires internationaux passera de chantiers, en actions ponctuelles dans différents endroits de France. Les volontaires auront la possibilité de voyager ensembles sur les routes de France et de faire étape chez des partenaires locaux pour les aider sur des projets courts ou pour participer à un atelier, ne passant pas plus de 3 jours au même endroit. Libres comme l'air !
Tipologia di lavoro: The first international work camp 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.
