    Hi,
    I just came across this site and that sounds really great.
    I am 18 and I am from Germany and Austria – which is difficult to say at the moment ;-)
    So are there any workcamps planned for 2012?
    Greetings

      Dear Rebekka,
      we are currently putting together the list of NMW workcamps that are being planned in 2012 and it will be published on this blog very shortly, maybe even by beginning of next week…so please keep watching.

    hello!
    how can I join to workcamp in Italy?
    I’m sorry, my English is not good, is it possible to speak with some italian-speaker?
    thank you!

  3. Yaroslav

    Hello
    I`m student from Russia and I interested in the project with name “Peace and NonViolence in Ghilarza” in Italy. Can I still take part in that project and is it necessary to pay money ahead (fee) ?

  4. myers

    hi Yaroslav, you need to apply via one of SCI’s acknowledged partners in Russia. You can find the contacts of all of them on the SCI international website http://www.sciint.org under “find a branch” on the right-hand side. We do not accept applications directly from private persons.

    Your sending organisation can give you all kinds of info whether there are places left, conditions of participation etc.

    Best of luck!

    Hi. How can I find the detail of application on the workcamp in Italy on Peace and NonViolence in Ghilarza? Thank you in advance.

  6. myers

    Hi Nantisara, you have to apply via a branch or partner organisation of SCI in the country where you reside. Go to the internaitonal website (www.sciint.org) and check the dropdown on the right-hand side to find the organisation you need.
    To find details about the camp, you can check the workcamp search engine, which you can also find on the international website.

    Good luck!

    HI :) I have a questions about ! Germany Travelling Camp ‘No More War!’ program.
    i wonder if woman can participate or not. because it couldn’t search in SCI site when i login.

    thank you!

  8. myers

    Dear Seulbi,
    unfortunately the NMW traveling workcamp in Germany is already full (12 volunteers from 8 different countries), that is why it is no longer advertised on the databank.

    The TWC is always one of our most popular camps and we get lots of applicaitons from highly motivated people interested in promoting peace education! The TWC is really unique, because it combines theoretical learning and discussion with the immediate opportunity to put that new learning into practice via all-day peer-to-peer education workshops in different intercultural settings.

    Well maybe you can apply next year already in April?

    greetings,

    Tell me please will all costs of road be paid by volunteer or the organization will pay?

  10. myers

    Hello Olesya,
    unfortunately the deadline for applying has past and all volunteers for the PC have been selected. They pay their own travel to the starting point of the PC and back home at the end. During the route itself, travels are paid by SCI.

    Hello,
    i’m EVS in Slovenija (Krsko) and I’m working in an organization making videos about young people and their activism projects. I think this project is very nice and I would like to meet the Peace Caravan team for few days when they will be close to Slovenia (Croatia, Hungary, Italy…) to make a video report about this project. What do you think about this idea? Do you think it could be possible?
    Feel free to contact me via email to discuss more about it.
    Best regards,
    Coralie.

  12. myers

    HI there Coralie,
    that sounds like a really nice offer, but we have to ask first those hosting organisations in those countries if they would be interested, willing and have the capacity to arrange it. And the details of a visit you would have to arrange directly with them. So please send me your emailaddress to: john.myers@sci-d.de, and then I can forward your idea to those responsible and give them your contacts in case they decide to follow it up with you…

    Cheers and many thanks for your encouraging support,

    John
