SCI – End of the year news

https://mailchi.mp/b6a0963e29d6/peace-connection-19317893?e=3c97cb7500

Dear Friends, festive welcome to the last Peace Connection of this year! A lot has happened in December – from 82nd International Committee Meeting to a first online International Volunteering Fair. We published new resources and education tools, awarded some amazing projects from our Branches and resumed the SCItizen subscription. We also would like to thank everyone who contributed to our democratic process at ICM and to promoting volunteering for peace in 2021. 
And there is so much to look forward to in the year 2022 – a new chapter in our long history!   

 82nd International Committee Meeting took place! 
SCI’s branches and groups met online between 1 and 7 December 2021 for an 82nd International Committee Meeting. These days were full of workshops, votings and fruitful discussions. To some members we said goodbye, some of them we welcomed to our network or to a new role. Bert Verstappen and Alena Lemisev were elected as new IEC members while Hemamali Perera was announced to assume the role of Acting President of the IEC as Jackie Purves steps down. The accepted resolutions and recommendations can be find here. To access all the documents and mailings related to 82nd ICM please visit Member’s Area

Street Action kit is the newest resource available on our website, created to empower your organisation and your activists. In a precise and compact way it will give you guidance on how to plan a street action on peace, how to promote it and gain visibility. It accompanies SCI Peace Cards as an outcome of the From Dreams to Actions project.
In another great news – you can now order your very own physical copy of the Peace Cards through this form
