** UPDATE:APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED **
That’s it, the Peace Caravan is officially launched, and you can now apply to join it this summer!
What is the Peace Caravan?
The Peace Caravan will take place this summer, between July 1st and September 13th, and will be an amazing opportunity to organise peace education actions and spread a message of peace! It will travel across Europe, from Finland to Catalunya, across 13 countries (Finland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Romania, Austria, Hungary, UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain).
Four teams will travel three weeks each (after an intial training and team-building seminar), mostly by train, and will organise peace education in cooperation with the branches. Some of them have been trained in the ‘Preparaing for peace’ seminar, taking place in Scotland in March. However, even if you have not taken part to this seminar, you can apply if you have peace education experience.
1st route: 30/06/2012 – 22/07/2012- Finland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia
2nd route: 18/7/2012- 9/8/2012- Serbia, Kosovo, Romania, Austria
3rd route: 5/8/2012- 27/8/2012- Austria, Hungary, UK, Belgium, Germany
4th route: 23/8/2012- 14/9/2012- Germany, italy, Spain
Travel will take place in sometimes challenging circumstances. Therefore participants will need to be flexible and ready to adapt to unexpected circumstances, and to travel sometimes long hours by train.
