Ccivs Event Camp
Description: VJF is member of several umbrella organisations. One of them is the COORDINATING COMMITTEE FOR INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTARY SERVICE (CCIVS), which is a non-governmental, non-profit making international organization (INGO) working for the development and coordination of voluntary service worldwide.CCIVS main focus is the quest to achieve change in the minds of men and women by bringing together people of different backgrounds. It supports and develops projects based on the idea that working together on a concrete task is the most effective way of creating international friendship and understanding. The projects serve as a catalyst for dialogue as they provide an opportunity to work together according to each persons ability and to practice living together. In such situations national and international volunteers experience a new reality which can challenge their habits and convictions as well as those of the local community.For having face-to-face exchange CCIVS has several events through the year. VJF is hosting two of them this year: the general conference (24.-26.11.) and general assembly (28.-30.11.). The General Assembly is the highest governing body of CCIVS. Around 120 people from all over the world will come to Berlin for networking and making important decisions. By the way VJF was founded in 1990 and we will have a big 30th birthday celebration between these CCIVS events (27.11.)More Info: www.ccivs.org, www.VJF.de
