In the beginning of May one of our trainers had the opportunity to co-train an international group of volunteers in Lagos, Nigeria. The event formed part of the Climate for Peace Campaign of SCI International and a description as well as reports can be found on SCI’s homepage: http://www.sciint.org/climate-justice-campaign/young-citizens-building-global-communities/volunteer-coordinators-training-nigeria

The training “Nonviolence needs Nature: let’s face the challenge” gathered 20 youth leaders from Europe and Asia in "La Città dell'utopia", Rome from 22 till 29 April 2014. During the training the participants were inspired and prepared to run activities and workcamps that will be part from the SCI Create a Climate for Peace Campaign. Natalie of the Pool of Trainers and Facilitators was part from the trainers team of the event in Italy.
The small and friendly eco-village in Cloughjordan, in the middle of Ireland, hosted in March 2014 our first official meeting. Eight members of the Pool of Trainers and Facilitators had the chance to meet and discuss about several interesting topics. The results of the meeting was a plan of action that includes the creation of projects and promotional ideas. Stay tuned!
"Citizens beyond Walls" is a challenging large-scale project involving different branches in SCI. Its aim is conducting a research about extremism in Europe and creating local initiatives in summer (Peace Weeks). Mauro of the Pool of Trainers was invited to facilitate the introductory sessions of the second meeting of the project, that took place in Athens at the beginning of March 2014, and hosted also experts on right-wing scenario in Europe, media and international law.
Mauro of the Pool of Trainers, together with Sara from the IS, coordinated a session during the 2013 ICM of SCI, aimed at facilitating a debate on different approaches that branches have on addressing the issues on their agenda. The discussion featured an intersting visual dimension, as you can see in the picture, and produce some valuable results in terms of sharing information among the network and identify priorities and working styles.
The 73rd SCI International Commettee Meeting will be held in Greece from 11 to 15 December 2013. What a nice chance to present our new Pool of Trainers to the branch delegates! A specific workshop to illustrate the Pool's members, features and working procedure has been already booked and will find a spot in the agenda. So don't forget to attend the workshop and prepare your questions if you wish to know more. We will be glad to tell you more!
See you there!
