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. 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 – 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.

APPLY for this ONLINE volunteer project in Switzerland starting on the 1st of February![Online Workcamp]

💻 "Wikipedia for Peace: Women‘s Suffrage"

Throughout the 19th and 20th century, women around the world have fought for their right to participate in elections.

Women in Switzerland were the last in Western Europe, gaining suffrage on 7 February 1971, 50 years ago. And still today, women in some parts of the world are not able to vote, even when men are.

In this online camp you will write/improve #Wikipedia articles about #WomensRights in any language you want and you will also learn about the feminist movement and inspiring activists within it!

This online camp is part of the bigger “Wikipedia for Peace” project, a cooperation between SCI and Wikimedia CH.

📆 1 - 7 February 2021
📍 Online

Interested? 📩 placement@scich.org
