Voices of Volunteers

VOV

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.

Your Contributions

We always need your news. As a member maybe you have been involved in some local actions promoting peace.

Please send us your stories (up to about 750 words) and photos – admin@ivp.org.au.

And please give us your feedback about the newsletter – what you enjoy reading, what you would like to see more of, etc.

International Volunteers for Peace

An amawing #workcamp opportunity in #Estonia: spend a couple of weeks in a Vikings' Village!

📆 23 February - 02 March 2020
📍 Viikingite Küla[WORKCAMP OPPORTUNITY]
Vikings Ways #workcamp

📅 23 February - 02 March 2020
📍 Viikingite küla, #Estonia

Guests and families can visit a real Vikings Village, Viikingite Küla, about 40 km outside of Estonian capital Tallinn, having a variety of activities such as arrow shooting, strong hold fights, handicraft workshops and competition events.

The Village needs constant attention and work to keep it ready for visitors and to develop further. Both in summer and winter there are many tasks to carry out and #volunteers are invited to help. Most of the work will be outdoors. The work involves carrying, chopping and cleaning wood, some construction and deconstruction works and other tasks around the Village. Some help will be needed also for the Fire Artists event, that takes place during the camp (constructing the stage, carrying things to the event area, cleaning area, set up tents and the whole event area, etc.)
