The Flying Penguin is our regular newsletter containing stories from returned volunteers, updates from the IVP office and committee, a round-up of peace-related activities and events from around the world, and discussion and opinion articles on a range of topics connected with the achievement of a peaceful global society. In past issues we have discussed what makes a successful workcamp, the challenges of volunteering in confl ict areas, and taking practical steps towards achieving the aims of the Service Civil International movement of being catalysts for change in a violent, inequitable world.
We always need your news. As a member maybe you have been involved in some local actions promoting peace. As a volunteer you certainly have a unique story to tell of your experiences and personal path as a positive force against injustice, discrimination, isolation, environmental degradation or conflict. Please send us your stories (up to about 750 words) and photos – firstname.lastname@example.org.
And please give us your feedback about the newsletter – what you enjoy reading, what you would like to see more of, etc.
