Here are some of the advices and questions which came up during the video training:
- Think about what you want to film in advance. You may wish to have a clear idea of what you want to capture. Think about a story from the perspective of an average viewer; for example it is good to include people entering the scene.
- Choose one person to be a character representing your camp. You may wish to record daily activities featuring comments from that person.

Here is Home – a movie, I can only heartily recommend to all of you and which could probably be used during the workcamps as well if you are in the mood for it – the pictures are stunningly beautiful – all was shot out of a balloon to be as environmentally friendly as possible
You can find the full movie here:
We looked at and compared three different methods of leadership. In the end consensus has been reached that we need to use elements of each of the styles flexibly according to the situation, the group dynamics and the needs of all involved parties.
The styles of leadership:
- Laissez faire
Below in the pictures you find a list with possible advantages and disadvantages of these styles…
Here the first public version of the toolkit for no-more-war coordinators and others working with groups on peace and pacifism
The no-more-war-group made this to give inspiration and ideas on how to work on these ideas in workcamps. If you have any additions and remarks or comments, we would love to hear them!
You can find the most up to date version of the toolkit on the Materials page.
There are lots of informations on different topics, some go beyond the training last week – like active listening, a detailed view on the nonviolent roots of SCI, workshops on pacifism, conflict resolution and structural violence. Along come as well general informations on how to plan and do study parts.
This page is created and used by participants and affiliates of the No More War group within Service Civil International, a global volunteer peace organization created after World War I.
Here we share our experiences, news and pictures related to Pacifism and Nonviolence – stopping war means ‘to spread across barriers which divide men a new spirit which will render morally impossible war between nations’ (to quote the founder of SCI, Pierre Ceresole).
To make this point more understandable, here a quote from the constitution of the UNESCO:
“That since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed”.
From the violent point of perspective, Hermann Goering, head of the German Luftwaffe and Nazi founder of the Gestapo is quoted with the following sentences:
“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
We are going the long road of inspiring people towards living together peacefully. Some moments of this road we will share with you on this page…
Enjoy the moment, step by step
