2018 will mark 70 years since the creation of CCIVS! The idea was seeded in 1947 and it became reality in 1948! The decision to create what is today the CCIVS was taken on the 23/24 April 1948 in the UNESCO headquarters. To celebrate this important anniversary and our continued hosting by UNESCO we will organise a Forum in the UNESCO HQ in Paris on the 23 April 2018 entitled “Just Volunteers: The Transformational Power of International Voluntary Actions for Climate Justice and Freedom of Movement”. Exactly 70 years after our creation, we will invite our members, partners, friends and all those who wish to come and learn more about the important role of non-formal learning and international voluntary service. More information will be shared soon.
Different events will take place during the year to celebrate IVS – we invite all of our members to unite to these celebrations and to make proposals to host events in your localities!
The celebrations will close in our GA in November in India with an Open Conference on ‘What is our International voluntary Service’… intrigued?!!! We will share more news during the year!!!
