By donating to CCIVS you directly support the actions related to each thematic area of CCIVS. If there is an action which directly relates to your field of work please contact us for further information about how you can become involved. CCIVS projects span 5 continents of the world and involve thousands of people every year, especially young people and communities at risk.
Specific actions for 2014 - The CCIVS year for Peace and Human Rights:
• 25 young people will be trained as trainers in peace and human rights education
• 25 staff members will be trained on advocacy and networking
To create a collective of trainers including NGO representatives and young people who will have the vision of a common action in the field of peace and human rights and who will be skilled to run large-scale actions.
CCIVS plans to end the year with a Summit for Peace and Human Rights where key stakeholders from the field of Peace and Human rights will be invited to share and exchange on the important of collective actions and international voluntary service on campaigning for peace and human rights.
CCIVS is still looking for funds to run the summit and co-financing for the other actions!
World Heritage Volunteers - www.whvolunteers.org
2014 marks the campaign Action for Sustainability!
50-70 World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) workcamps will take place in Africa, Americas, Europe and Asia.
Hundreds of volunteers will mobilise and work together with local schools and communities for heritage protection.
The World Heritage Volunteers initiative is implemented by CCIVS and the World Heritage Centre - UNESCO.
WHV workcamps gather young volunteers from different countries during a given period of time to live and work together with the local population towards a common goal: WH preservation.
The protection of heritage allows volunteers involved in the project to reflect about issues related to preservation, the symbolism of the sites where they work and the way it is embedded in local traditions. Working on a concrete site and reflecting about its past, present and future function allows keeping traditions alive and re-creating lost links.
CCIVS needs support to run the planning, monitoring and evaluation meetings for this campaign in order to invite the maximum amount of people possible from all continents and to ensure the quality of the projects being run.
