IVP will be represented at the IVCO conference with Rita Warleigh giving a presentation highlighting 100 years of SCI and our work in the area of climate change and climate justice.
International Volunteers for Peace invite you for the
Reunion and celebration of 100 years of SCI
Sunday 20th September: 2pm to 8pm

What’s happening and why? SCI is 100 years old in 2020. This is an invitation to a reunion for IVP members and a celebration of IVP’s contribution to peace. Meet old friends, exchange memories, be inspired by what is happening in the field of peace.
But wait, there’s more! The Peace Festival will be a public event and many other peace groups will join us with stalls and exhibitions, movies, speakers. The Nobel Peace Prize medal will be on display. There will be activities, music and refreshments. An fantastic exhibition celebrating peace will be on display at the same venue from 20th Sept to 4th Oct. More details will be provided on the IVP website closer to the date including a detailed program and booking information.
